Uniform Resource Locators

By Jim Straus, URLs@mactech.com

Don’t hesitate to notify me of any sites that you think would be of interest! As always, the full list is maintained on-line at http://www.mactech.com/URLs.html.

Web Watch

This being September, traditionally the time for going back to school, we will look at some Internet sites which allow you to learn to program your Macintosh on your own - and which also take advantage of the Internet as a publishing medium.

An excellent place to start if you want to program the Mac is the Macintosh C Home Page. This is a book, by K. J. Bricknell, in Australia, covering everything from low-level events through custom windows. Included are sample code, demonstration programs and lots of other stuff. There are two versions, one for CodeWarrior and one for Symantec; both can be downloaded, and the former can be read on-line, with many nice Web touches such as two frames with code and commentary respectively.

The Mac OS Students and Teachers site provides links to self-study tutorials and other on-line resources (including commentary on the Macintosh C Home Page!), plus Internet classes, where a group of people will follow one of the self-study courses with a mentor providing guidance. If you need more structure to your learning, this would be an excellent way to proceed. And if you can give of your time to help those still learning, be sure to stop in. We need to evangelize Mac development and this would be a great way to help.

No discussion of on-line learning would be complete without stopping by Apple’s Developer University. Developer University has created self-study courses that have been available in printed form for years. They have started to move these courses to the Internet. Four of the courses have been transformed, and more are promised.

To learn about Symantec’s THINK Class Library, there is a very nice tutorial, again out of Australia. The student is taken through the development of several programs, creating the projects, using Visual Architect, and writing the code.

For PowerPlant learners, there is the PowerPlant Beginners page. This isn’t so much a tutorial as a collection of reference material about PowerPlant. When the Beginners page originally appeared, it looked like it was going to be collaborative effort between the author and his readers. It has turned into more of a place for the author to report what he has discovered about PowerPlant, which is currently rather brief and superficial.

And let’s not forget good old Inside Macintosh. Apple has made some of the volumes available on the Internet, as a publishing test. Hopefully they will complete this project, as it would be very useful to be able to use the Internet to look up that tidbit you need to finish your project. In any case, you will end up reading a lot of Inside Macintosh if you do much Mac programming at all.

Thanks this month to Jonn Chard, Evan Garbe, Elliotte Rusty Harold, Devon Hubbard, Carol Lashman, Steve Makohin, Cliff Miller, Dave Nebinger, D. Slattery, Tom Nielsen, Wayne Walrath, and many others for their contributions for their suggestions and pointers to new and old sites.
