Carpetbag is a shareware ($5) control panel that makes fonts, sounds, FKEYs, and keyboard layouts available to your programs without altering the System file. Specify certain folders, and Carpetbag opens all resource files therein at startup. It works under System 6, but is smarter remembering folders under System 7.
I do not recommend that Carpetbag be used with Mac OS 9.0. I am not sure whether I will be able to update it for compatibility.
Frankly, since Apple introduced the Fonts folder in System 7.1, Carpetbag is not as helpful as it once was. But if you often install or remove fonts or FKEYs, and don't like having to quit everything before the Finder will let you do it, you may still find this helpful.
Includes Laser Path 1.5, a utility for storing PostScript fonts outside the System Folder.
By the way, Carpetbag itself patches no traps and does not affect the speed of your computer. Laser Path is another story.
