Description[edit]

There are probably more potential problems in dealing with the Resource Manager than any other part of the Mac toolbox. One bug in the manager's code is that every time a resource is marked as changed, space is reserved on the disk for a new version without removing any previous requests. So if you change a resource 100 times, then space will be reserved on your hard drive for 100 copies. This becomes a problem because the file size and the number of resources allowed in a single file is finite.

This procedure will only mark a handle as changed (a) it is a resource handle and (b) it is not already flagged as a changed resource.
