How to learn Carbon - Mac Programming

I have been programming under Cocoa for a while now and am very comfortable in that environment.

    Default How to learn Carbon

    I have been programming under Cocoa for a while now and am very
    comfortable in that environment. However I want to port some existing
    Unix graphics library to the Mac, so I will need to use the Carbon API.

    The problem I have is that there doesn't seem to be any introductory
    doentation shipped with Xcode or on Apple's developer website that
    teachs how to use Carbon. There isn't even a Carbon, section in their
    sample code library. It seems as if Apple doesn't really want people
    using Carbon. The only resources I can find is the Orielly book
    "Learning Carbon" which is a few years old.

    Any tips on the best way to learn Carbon?

    Also, nearly all of the sample code categories at
    <http://developer.apple.com/samplecode/index.html> are Carbon code.
    The one you'd most likely want for UI code is the Human Interface
    Toolbox section.

    Hope this helps,
