Chapter 4: Modifications to the ToolBox

Several changes have been made to the ToolBox, the most major of which is the replacement of the entire TextTools tool set. The TextTools were replaced for a number of reasons -- better control over text I/O, increased speed, and emulation of ORCA's redirection system with as little overhead as possible. Other changes were made to modify the behavior of some tool calls to be more consistent with the idea of a multitasking environment.
