Network operation

Since BP2 is able to resolve aliases and load files on remote volumes, this type of organisation may be extended to local network configurations: the basic elements could for instance be stored on a server and accessed by users with the usual read/write permissions. For instance, it is safe to protect alphabets or sound-objects from unauthorised modifications if they are shared by different projects.

BP2 can read directly text files edited by DOS or Windows editors. In this process, "high ASCII" characters are automatically transcoded. This feature has been implemented to facilitate the direct interpretation of text-oriented musical items or grammars produced in the Wintel environment.
