Thanks for the quick response!

I ended up using old-style cases because they were used in the
surrounding code.  The library then compiled without error.

I also compiled the the tutorial, again without error.  It ran okay
mostly, but for unknown reasons the buttons on the modal dialog were
inactive, so I had to kill the task to exit the program.  Is this a
known problem?
