Programmers, Programmers, Programmers, ...
As Steve Balmer correctly stated, while making his monkey dance, it is
applications and hence programmers that make a platform. The fact though is
that if you want to do professional programming, then Linux is the platform
for you. I know that this statement will get the heckels up on a lot of
trolls in C.O.L.A, but I have a recent experience that proves this.

I, and I suspect many others (and I'm just starting to learn Cocoa as
well) would recommend the Hillegass book (Cocoa: Programming for OS X).

I've just released the newest version of Mac Graphviz, featuring
shapefile support and enhanced zoom.
Shapefiles supported include PDF, EPS, PS, JPEG, PNG and all Quicktime
formats. Either specify an absolute or relative (to working directory)
file path, or a URL using the shapefile attribute.
Developers can now also use the graphviz.framework directly with
#include headers in C e.g. using Xcode "Add Frameworks...";
documentation is available from the main Graphviz site --

Them pesky bugs. A few more squashed courtesy of the sleepy pixel.
What's new in v11
Fixed some comprehensive help [NRi].
Fixed scale option placeholder [NRi].
Improved application and document icons.
Example files now double-click to open in application.
What's new in v12
Added layout option tooltips [NRi].
Fixed layout popup button changing wrong graph [MKe].

It's been a busy week or two at Pixelglow Software. Here's a brand new
version of Graphviz, all spit and polish now. You'll enjoy the

of course when you save it the graph automatically re-renders.

It seems that Mac OS X has partially documented issues

The Preview application cannot export to eps, but it can read it

generated by Preview, the EPS it generates sometimes (inconsistently)
causes dvips to make an unreadable file.

Our problem: Files saved on the Server from OS 9 via AFP will be recognized
by OS X as "Document" without application information. I tried to connect

you can either build from the console, or use the provided XCode project
files (ending in .xcode) there is one for the library and one for the
minimal sample which you can use as starting point.
If you are familiar with the linux environment then the console should
be easiest, just follow the instructions in docs/ , if not then xcode is
probably closer to that you are used to.

I am a Windows C/C++ and DirectX programmer who has migrated to Mac OS
completely to do video game programming. I am running Mac OS 10.4.2. As
I am new to Mac programming I would appreciate some direction.
On Windows I code using the Win32 API and DirectX with a programmer's
text editor rather than a full IDE. I do my compiling and linking via
command line using Microsoft's own compiler tools. I do not use MFC or
other higher level classes, nor do I create my interfaces using an
interface building app. Ideally, I'd like to keep working in this style
since I'm more productive this way. It gives me more control and enables
me to produce smaller, cleaner code. So with this in mind...
1. What exactly is Xcode? I see that it is GCC 4.0 plus an IDE and a few
GUI dev tools; but is it just a programming environment like Visual
Studio, or is it something more? If it is more, do I lose anything by
using it in terms of portability and performance.
2. Is there a flexible and practical programming environment on Mac that
is preferred for cross-platform game development with OpenGL and SDL?
3. Does writing Cocoa mean writing apps that are non-portable to Windows?
4. On Windows, MFC can make certain programming tasks easier, but it is
often messy, resulting in bloated and buggy code. Does a similar
situation exist with Cocoa and Carbon? Should I aim to code close to the
API? Am I thinking about this the right way?
5. ...Mac OS X & Mac OS X Server
I'm currently using a 9i developer release on Mac OS X (10.3) which has
proved very stable so far. My understanding of the various Oracle press
releases is that 10G will be released for Mac OS X, are there any beta
testers out there wiling to comment on availabilitu/quality/performance
issues for 10G on Mac OS X?
Another question is whether tools such as the OEM will be available in 10G
for Mac OS X, does anybody know?
Yours in anticipation!

Someone told me that Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x do not come with iLife
like the older Mac OS X versions (e.g., 10.5.x). I did not know this!
Since my client uses iPhoto that came preinstalled on his old 2008
MacBook Pro's Mac OS X 10.5.x (10.5.8 right now), can he use the old one
from 10.5.8? Or will he need a third party replacement (needs to
import/copy the old image files) or buy a new iPhoto version for his
photo(graph)s? I recalled he did not like iPhoto and wonder if the new
one is any better.
Thank you in advance. :)
