New MacTech CD ROM includes THINK Reference Collector
-- Now THINK Reference users can have updated Mac OS API information

Westlake Village, California - July 19th, MacTech Magazine, the
Journal of Macintosh Technology and Development, releases the MacTech
CD ROM (volumes 1-15, through June 1999) with new THINK Reference
Collector.

Debuting at Macworld in New York, the new release of the MacTech CD
ROM provides the most complete reference collection available for
Macintosh programmers and developers -- and features a new tool for
collecting and compiling the latest references for Mac OS APIs into
compact, easily searchable, THINK Reference format.

The MacTech CD ROM includes the entire history of MacTech Magazine,
2000 articles from almost 170 issues of MacTech Magazine running from
1984 through June of 1999. This wealth of programming tutorials,
introductions to new technologies, and how to articles are compiled
into databases for the THINK Reference system.

Also included are the complete run of Apple's develop magazine, the
FrameWorks journal, and Apple's original inside Macintosh technical
reference -- all in THINK Reference format. Source code for these
articles, compilations of Mac programming newsgroups, shareware,
demos, and special offers are also included on the CD ROM.

The THINK Reference Viewer (included on the CD ROM) is explicitly
supported by all major Macintosh development environments --
including CodeWarrior, Object Master, and Symantec C++. Simply select
text in these environments and use a command key combination to bring
THINK Reference forward and search for that API or keyword. The new
THINK Reference Viewer also supports complex boolean searches and an
advanced high speed search engine that allows you to quickly and
precisely find the information you need.

"THINK Reference is simply an essential tool for Mac OS developers.
It's fast, clean, easy to use, and simply the best way I can think of
to quickly store and access reference information," said Kevin Avila,
CEO of Cache Computing.

A new THINK Reference Compiler is featured on the CD ROM with support
for AppleEvents and larger makefiles. Simply drop a makefile on the
compiler to compile large directories of HTML documents into a
single, compact THINK Reference database.

The THINK Reference Collector, developed by Cache Computing
(http://www.cache-computing.com/), is also included on the CD ROM.
This tool can download the entire contents of Apple's Inside
Macintosh web pages onto your local disk, create makefiles, and use
the new THINK Reference Compiler to process these files into compact,
easily searchable, THINK Reference Databases. Finally, you can have
the latest Mac OS API calls, at your finger tips, with THINK
Reference.

Marshall Clow, of Adobe Systems observed "The THINK Reference
Collector is one of the best ideas for developers that I've seen in a
long time. Now developers can build custom THINK Ref databases to use
while they are debugging or not online. Not everyone has a T1 :-)"
