sorry, what i was trying to say was, how would i write something that  
at first tries to create a hidden file on a apple computer then if  
the computer was not a apple creates a hidden file on a windows OS

i have slowly been reading your tutorial and it's really one of the  
best tuts i've ever read i really like and that was the first place i  
checked but in the GUI section the text entry bit is for a single  
line of text
