Mac os 9 Vs. Mac os X - Mac Programming

I am porting some windows software to mac os 9. My client has only mac os 9. I would like to use the URLAccessLib for my development. I find no doentation of it on Apple websites as if mac os 9 has fallen off the earth for them. The apple site says One can develop on mac os x and it is backward compatible. What does this mean ? When I install my code on mac os 9 will I need all the mac os x libraries ? can someone throw somelight ? Thanks...

    Default Mac os 9 Vs. Mac os X

    I am porting some windows software to mac os 9. My client has only mac
    os 9. I would like to use the URLAccessLib for my development. I find
    no doentation of it on Apple websites as if mac os 9 has fallen off

    compatible. What does this mean ? When I install my code on mac os 9
    will I need all the mac os x libraries ?

    can someone throw somelight ?

    If your application is carbonised (ie you link against CarbonLib instead
    of InterfaceLib & co) then the same binary will run on OS X and OS 9

    I was trying to reference the CarbonLib from visual basic...I was
    succesful with Interacelib but couldn't access CarbonLib. I dont
    understand why. The system seems to have CarbonLib 1.4.
    Thanks for the reply

    You can't use CarbonLib if your host application isn't carbonized.
    InterfaceLib and CarbonLib are an either-or thing.

    I wasn't even aware Visual Basic existed in a Mac version (save maybe
    for VBA in MS Office) -- did you mean REALBasic, perhaps?

    Thanks for the reply.
    How can I get access to InterfaceLib api's ? I am using VBA inside office.
    I can call Interfacelib functions.
    Thanks

    If I can access Interfacelib, Why can't I access CarbonLib ? Is there
    something called URLAccessLib ?
    Thanks for the reply
