MFCMAC: The Final Frontier ...well not really.
This project is basically a library of routines and classes that emulate
the Microsoft Foundation Classes(MFC). This is in no way affiliated
with Microsoft, Inc. The code is (*hopefully*) pretty simple and well
commented so far, so let's keep it that way.

Background: MFC is a good development platform, but it only works on
Windows. I think it can be ported to Mac, Linux, and some others. This

choice, especially because it is free.
Purpose: The purpose of the classes is the same as that of their
Window's counterparts, except for menus, which are described in
Compiling: Use Metrowerks Codewarrior for best results. MPW or Think
C++ might work, but I haven't tried. Note: you must have MacOS 8.6 or
and run CarbonLib 1.2. You have to get a free membership from apple for
this, but Carbon is the future of Mac, so it's definetely worth it.
I can't give you CarbonLib because of licensing issues.
Getting It: Visit the Project Website
for info on getting the code with
CVS or a file release.
Disclaimer: Colin (who writes the code and the readmes) doesn't
understand MFC at all, except what he learns from Alex. He therefore
understands little of what each class does. He doesn't even have access
to documentation. He also refers to himself in the third person, for
