One of the most useful indexes on the World Wide Web is Yahoo. You can explore Yahoo interactively by clicking on general categories and then more specific ones or you can enter key words and let the database search for items that match. Yahoo started as a project between two Stanford students, but is now a commercial venture with support from Netscape, Inc. This gives the database lots of horsepower and fast connections.

Another good index to the Internet is Lycos, provided by Carnegie Mellon University. Lycos has over 5 million web pages in its database. Unlike Yahoo, which is annotated by humans, Lycos is generated automatically by a “Web Walking Robot”. This program traverses the World Wide Web link by link and indexes each page found. The database is huge, but it is a great place to look for things you think might be available on the Internet.


One of the tools I use most often has always been Symantec’s Think Reference. Apple introduced a similar, more current product called ToolBox Assistant (distributed by Addison Wesley). Even better, Apple places updates to both the browser and the databases on the Internet. Maybe we’ll even see OpenDoc and Copland references soon?

Updates to ToolBox Assistant are at

or if you prefer to FTP:

Brian Connors has created a FAQ (Frequenly Asked Questions) about free development systems for the Macintosh. He’s created quite a list with lots of pointers to track down these eclectic programming systems. Lots of fun for those of us who like the weird and wacky!

John Pugh has been busy updating his excellent page of programs he’s written. He’s even gotten it on a real web server.

Chris Tate has created a very nice page of links to lots of Mac resources on the net. A lot of them are mentioned above, but check them out on-line.

Here’s a spot for all of you XCMD programmers. XCMDs are for more than HyperCard hackers, you know.

Metrowerks, (my favorite compiler company) now has it’s own web site. They’ve got lots of good stuff including bunches of PowerPlant classes that people have contributed.

Several security companies have Web pages available. If you’re interested in copy protection or secure remote access connections, here are some starting points:
