[MD1] Latitude Link Test Library
From: MWRon@metrowerks.com (MW Ron) For those CodeWarriors out there who are planning on developing for Rhapsody, you can now test CodeWarrior Latitude's Mac Toolbox coverage against your own applications without purchasing Latitude. You can now "try-before-you-buy" by downloading the Latitude Link Test Library from the Metrowerks web site: (http://www.metrowerks.com/desktop/latitude/) By replacing the Mac OS InterfaceLib in your CodeWarrior Project with the Latitude Link Test Library and performing a link (Make) operation in the CodeWarrior IDE, you can see if there are any Mac OS Toolbox calls that your application is using that are not yet implemented in Latitude. This is helpful to developers that are planning to port their applications to Rhapsody or any other Latitude supported platform. Potential buyers must have CodeWarrior Professional to perform this test. CodeWarrior Latitude consists of a set of libraries that performs the functions of the Macintosh API on Rhapsody and...

[MD1] Build Counter tool
From: woody@alumni.caltech.edu (William Edward Woody) Subject: [ANN] Build Counter tool for tracking number of builds. Okay, this is a hack. I needed a quick way to increment a 'build count' in a Macintosh project I'm working on. So one afternoon, I hacked this together. It's a Macintosh plugin for CodeWarrior that creates a 4 byte build count resource in your Macintosh application. It's specifically a post-linker plugin, which is invoked after your application is linked. And everytime you build your application, the 4 byte count resource will be incremented by one. You can download this hack^H^H^H^H tool from: http://www.alumni.caltech.edu/~woody/software/buildcount.html Of course, as this is a quick hack, I cannot guarentee that this won't wipe out your system, burn your apartment down, and cause your girlfriend to leave you for an Windows 95 user.

[MD1] ProVUE Development's SiteWarrior
SiteWarrior Wages War On Web Site Complexity ProVUE Development has released SiteWarrior, a new program that uses a revolutionary approach for authoring and managing medium to large web sites. This approach makes HTML coding faster, more flexible and more productive by using an ultra fast RAM based database to manage the structure of an entire web site. SiteWarrior automates tedious tasks such as building tables, catalogs, tables of contents, navigation banners, links to neighboring pages, and other repetitive elements within a web site. Unlike most web authoring tools, SiteWarrior does not attempt to eliminate the need for HTML with WYSIWYG features. Instead, SiteWarrior embraces HTML and automates HTML production with custom "HTML factories" controlled by user defined templates. "For the past two years vendors have tried to convince me that I should stop coding in HTML, but I find that direct HTML coding is still the way to go", says SiteWarror beta tester Kevin Killion of Stone...

[MD1] ISO C++ Standard Passes
From: Bjarne Stroustrup, bs@research.att.com Friday, Nov 14, the ISO C++ standards committee unanimously approved a "final draft international standard" (FDIS) for C++. This means that all technical work on the C++ standard has been completed. The number of the C++ standard is ISO/IEC 14882. There is a final step in the ISO process where the standards bureaucraties ratify the decision of their technical experts. However, that is a formality where no serious controversy exists (and the C++ vote was unanimous!). Under ISO rules, it is now possible to refer to the C++ standard from other standards. Therefore, so can we. We now have ISO C++, ANSI C++, AFNOR C++, BIS C++, DIN C++, etc. - and they are all the same :-) A press release from the committee aimed primarily at non-programmers can be found among my homepages. Personally, I'm very pleased with the new standard. - Bjarne Bjarne Stroustrup, AT&T Labs, http://www.research.att.com/~bs [ Send an empty e-mail to c++-help@...
