    Nope, I'm not crazy

    Open Source - Internet & Web - Bonjour

    Click for the latest stable release (mDNSResponder-107.6.tar.gz) but,

    http://opensource.apple.com/darwinsource/tarballs/other/mDNSResponder-108.6.tar.gz is the latest version (dated from july of '07). Inside is a folder called "mDNSMacOS9"

    On the Apple Mailing Lists for Bonjour, it was confirmed(back in 2004) that this folder contains the sourcecode for

    The slight problem is that it appears that the source code was coded using CodeWarriors. The reason that I bring this up is I have an old iMac DV 400 Mhz running OS 9 & probably am going to pick up an airport card from Macsales.com. But, alas, I lack the knowledge (or CodeWeavers itself for that matter) to compile this extension for OS 9.

    Might anyone have any experience compiling things in CodeWarriors and/or porting the code to xCode ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I thought OS 9 already had included support for Rendezvous...

    Anyway, what do you *need* it for on OS 9?

    Don't "need" it per se, just thought it'd be a cool little add-on thats all.

    Would this allow a Mac OS 9 machine to use an airport express shared printer?
