    Hi,

    I am recently involved in writing an application which use multiprocess. I have already installed MacApp_Release_XV.I.smi. I tried with a couple of the examples there, but all of them requires the header files which I don't have any clue to find them. Do you guys have information about a good document, or if you know a good book, etc which can help me in this regards.

    Thanks a lot.

    The easiest way to find most things about Mac programming is going to developer.apple.com, and typing whatever you are looking for into the search box.

    However, MacApp is positively ancient. Quote:

    I wouldn't even think about touching MacApp anymore. Type "multiprocessing" into the search box at developer.apple.com to get some recent information.

    I don't even think you could run an application built against MacApp on an Intel Machine.

    Download XCode. It comes with examples.

    Thanks for your comment. Ok, so I found out that it is possible to use carbon or cocoa toolbox to perform this job. But it seems that first I have learn the objective -C. So to start my reading and learning, which you do you think it is easier for me? I know c++ but have no idea what is this objective -C!?

    Objective - C is similar to C++,mainly the syntax differs and many more new features are added to Objective - C. All the features like inheritence, polymorphism, exceptions etc are available in Obj C too.
    So, try getting basic info from a beginner book or from net. u can understand easily if u are familiar with C++

    Carbon is in C++ so you can stick with C++, just learn a whole new class library (in my mind knowing the classes is 2/3rds of knowing C++)

    The problem is that carbon is going away. Figure it will be supported until 2010 or so and will run for another 5-10 years after that.

    Cocoa and Objective C are the way to go. ObjC is easy to learn if you already know OOP. Messaging is for the most part the same as making a function call and is a lot friendlier when it comes to learning a new framework.
