You cannot use Basic of any flavour to write Cocoa. Pure Cocoa is normally written in Objective-C although there are bridges from Java, Python and other languages.

Although, REALbasic is coming out with an update that will produce Cocoa apps.

Can't you use RealBasic (http://www.realsoftware.com/news/pr/2006/cocoa/)?

EDIT Damn beaten.

Project > Set Active Build Configuration > Release. Then compile and distribute your .app.

Um, just like any other Mac application. Drag and drop into /Applications folder. If you have components that *need* to be installed and you can't do it any other way (bundle in .app and manually install on first-run?) then use PackageMaker in /Developer/Applications/Utilities/

http://objective-basic.com/ is a variant of basic that can use Cocoa and Carbon directly :)

It sounds to me that he doesn't have a Basic application (an application written in some dialect of the Basic programming language), but a basic application (an application that is not very complex). However, I might be wrong.

Just goes to show how important it is to express your questions in clear, correct English so that people trying to help don't have to make guesses.
