A trial version of Flashmode-Alpha, for the combination 
AlphaX/TeXniscope, can be downloaded from

The version expires on Jan. 31 and has only one copy of Flashmode. 
Please, read the instructions!

The developers of AlphaX obviously never thought that AlphaX itsself 
might be the target of Applescripts. Alpha's Applescript dictionary 
contains only a minimal amount of classes and commands; fortunately, it 
understands the 'save' command, which is infinitely more than Emacs' 
knowledge of Applescript commands, and enough for producing a working 
version of Flashmode.

Notice that 'Enable access for assistive devices' has to be checked in 
'Universal Access'.

It would be more satisfactory, if the following Applescript commands 
(and properties) could be implemented in AlphaX (considered only as 

1. get path of front document --unix path
2. if document texName is modified then
