MacOS 9 - Help with Netscape Plug In - Mac Programming

Hello, I am trying to write a PlugIn for Netscape. I have downloaded the SDK from the Netscape Site. I now have the following questions that I can't seem to find answer to and was wondering if anyone could help. 1. I am using CodeWarrior 8.3 (the latest I think), but the projects in the SDK are for an older version.

    Default MacOS 9 - Help with Netscape Plug In

    Hello,

    I am trying to write a PlugIn for Netscape. I have downloaded the SDK from
    the Netscape Site. I now have the following questions that I can't seem to
    find answer to and was wondering if anyone could help.

    1. I am using CodeWarrior 8.3 (the latest I think), but the projects in the
    SDK are for an older version. I convert them ok, but I am confused as to what
    to make the Plug-In, e.g. Shared Lib, Application etc. This setting doesn't
    seem to convert properly. Does anyone know what it should be?

    2. I am confused over the STR# 128 resource. The plugIn needs to be called
    when a JPEG image has arrived from the server, in this case what should I set
    the strings to?

    Thanks in advance from your help
    Eric

    1. You should build a bundle package, you can leave HFS creator as
    "????" and set Type to "BRPL"

    2. For the STR# 128 resource, you can set the first field to
    "application/x-jpg" (<- this seems to be just a naming convention) and
    the 2nd field to "jpg" <- this must match your file extension.
    Note that in your embed tag, "type" must match the first string.

    hope this helps.

    Probably shared libraries but they may be CodeResources

    You might want to ask this question on the netscape.public.mozilla.mac
    newsgroup.

    Get Apples reference Inside Mac OS X System Overview from Apples
    Developer Connection.
