    Developing for Tiger and Leopard / PowerPC (a devlog)

    I thought I'd start a thread about how to develop applications for PowerPC Macs running Tiger and Leopard, as I learn to do so. (I know there is a programming-specific sub-forum here, but that's really oriented towards modern macOS / iOS development, so I figured this sub-forum is a better fit...
