 of old MacOS executables, RoyalT seems to be the only one
 with GETDATA diagnostics. It is certain that GETDATA took
 some selector. Perhaps it is possible to play with RoyalT
 and find out the range of acceptable selectors and return
 values. But is it worth it? We found 3 fonts so far. This is
 a dump of related strings from RoyalT and RoyaTPPC. I am
 done with this.

Thanks for doing this. It is always good to have another pair of eyes. 
Obviously there is no urgency to this at all, since we have found only 3 fonts 
:-). And very old fonts too...

I was wondering about whether the later classic version of AAT editor had that, 
but I have not had any chance of locating a binary. Did you?

Besides RoyalT, I actually found another piece of software containing the 
GETDATA string: the QuickDraw GX graphics extension (i.e. the piece of system 
code that hooks into the OS to provide GX related functionality) . That's fully 
expected of course. It seems that it may be possible that RoyalT can edit GX 
fonts on non-GX systems, so the same might be true for the later apple font 
editor, just "not too late".
