[MD1] Tempo will be MacOS 8
MARCH 5, 1997 VOLUME 11 ISSUE 10 Tempo's official name: Mac OS 8 By MacWEEK Staff Apple announced today that the OS code-named Tempo will be officially known as Mac OS 8, a name that was reserved for the company's failed next-generation OS project, code-named Copland. "It would be confusing to not call it 8," said Jim Gable, vice president of AppleSoft product marketing. "We feel very strongly it is a major upgrade." Gable said that the user-interface changes in the Tempo release merit more than the Mac 0S 7.7 designation originally planned for it. Apple's current naming scheme calls for changing the first digit of the version number when major architectural or user-experience changes are made (see http://www.macweek.com/mw_1035/news_system754.html). He said Apple's market research indicated that users did not strongly associate the Mac OS 8 name with Copland and felt the name was appropriate for the Tempo release. "This wouldn't even be a big issue if the Copland project wasn't...

[MD1] ScriptAgent
Leverage the power of your AppleScript and 4th Dimension applications with ScriptAgent. ScriptAgent actually embeds AppleScript into the 4D procedural language, which enables 4D to communicate bi-directionally with virtually any AppleScriptable application. You can even combine conditional program branching code and data from both 4D and AppleScript in the same procedure! For instance, a user can enter a customer code into a 4D layout, press Tab, and instantly return the matching customer record into the layout from an outside source (like MacP&L, an AppleScriptable accounting application). That's something you could never do with AppleScript alone. Or build a complete publishing workflow solution using QuarkXpress, 4D, and your favorite scriptable graphics cataloging application. ScriptAgent works great with the new 4D Version 6, and will provide the developer with massive background processing power using the new EXECUTE ON SERVER command. Just imagine what you could do with...

Yours, Jordan ====== Date: 02/20 Letter to the Editor, Fortune Magazine Dear John, We must confess to being more than a bit confused by your highly melodramatic story about Apple ("Something's Rotten in Cupertino"). Much of your March 3, 1997 article is based on speculation from an individual who even you characterize as a frequently unreliable source, and then your supporting evidence is almost entirely unattributed quotations. We expect better from Fortune. So, allow us to provide an attributed quotation about the story's thesis and suppositions from one of its key figures, Steve Jobs, "The Fortune article is pure fantasy.

From: richardb@cocytus.demon.co.uk (Richard Buckle) I've posted some AppleScripts for CodeWarrior. They are useful for people working with multiple CodeWarrior projects in the same project folder, typically because they are building fat binaries or merging multiple code resources into the same file. They let you do common operations such as building or compacting all projects at once, with just one command. They're at (http://www.cocytus.demon.co.uk/progtools.html) and have also been sent to MacGifts, so they should be appearing on info-mac soon. Richard.

[MD1] Can anyone save Packard Bell?
Not in the typical use of MacDev-1, this was a very intriguing piece. Enjoy the diversion. Thanks, Neil Ticktin MacTech Magazine publisher@mactech.com ------------------------------------------------------- This reprint is from: Scott Kelby, MacToday@aol.com CAN ANYONE SAVE PACKARD BELL? )From the Mar/Apr issue of Mac Today Magazine (http://www.mactoday.com) by Scott Kelby The other day, while reading another article designed to scare the pants off potential Apple customers and/or shareholders, I started wondering what life would be like if I somehow got a writing gig at a PC magazine. Besides having to wear the dorky-looking outfit, wire-rimmed glasses, and pocket protector, I'm certain that during my first day on the job I'd be handed a secret dossier that would include the closely guarded manual of rules for writing any article that mentions Apple Computer. It would include certain guidelines to follow, like "Any good news on Apple must be followed by the word 'but' and then a...

[MD1] Free CodeWarrior-plug-in Eiffel
From: jcd@kira.peak.org (Joshua Dunfield) I have ported SmallEiffel to the Macintosh as a Metrowerks CodeWarrior plug-in. The compiler, a simple fractal example, and docs can be downloaded from: http://www.peak.org/~jcd/eiffel/ Beta version, use at your own risk, etc. The source code is available at the same URL. This is an unofficial port: the SmallEiffel authors were not involved. (From the README file:) * What are Eiffel and SmallEiffel? Eiffel is a clean, efficient object-oriented language. SmallEiffel is a free compiler for a subset (no garbage collection, no exceptions, no...) of Eiffel. As is typical of Eiffel compilers, it generates ANSI C code, not machine code. * Requirements Metrowerks CodeWarrior, preferably CW/10. The plug-in compiler is fat (both 68K and PPC code).

MacXperts Introduces WebX for the MacOS RICHMOND, Virginia -- February 13, 1997 -- MacXperts, Inc. today announced the release and immediate availability of WebX, a WebSTAR plug-in that enables you to connect a MacOS based web server to any Oracle7 database.

You can't do that with other web-database solutions" continued Tyler. WebX generates dynamic HTML pages from Oracle stored procedures. Stored procedures retrieve and manipulate data from the Oracle database, format the data into HTML and return the pages to WebSTAR via the WebX plug-in. WebX offers the full power of PL/SQL to manipulate your data and the ability to gather/serve data locally or connect to a remote...
