I stongly advise you to acquire a legal copy of Codewarrior Pro 8 for
Mac OS. (The current version, Pro 9, requires OS X). metrowerks.com used
to have an inexpensive academic version, acailable to students, that
differed from the full version only in the license. Contact
It comes with an application development class library (in source code
form) called PowerPlant that runs on 9 and X, and includes an example
program that does ftp and http. It has tons of doentation in pdf
form. Start with "The PowerPlant Book".
Metrowerks also hosts a contributed class archive of useful source code:
All of the OS 9 doentation is still online on Apple's web site,
starting from the root page of:
Apple has a useful page on programming on a Mac, aimed at Windows
mactech.com has the archives of develop magazine, which had some
terrific articles on OS 9 and earlier programming.
if you absolutely must not spend any money, then you need the MPW
doentation. You might also look into wxWidgets (formerly called
wxWindows) a Microsoft-Foundation-Class-Library flavored cross platform
application development class library.
