Getting Serious on OSX
A quick update on REBOL for OSX.... just some small details for those who are interested.
- We've purchased a new Mac because we don't like waiting for compiles.
We hope Apple ships it here soon.
- We've also purchased XCode for development. This is part of our
"if you can't beat them, join them" attitude. In other words,
we will do it like everyone else. That essentially means that we
will need to decode and understand the internals of the XCode build
files (because REBOL must do its own make-make process). Hopefully, the files will be in a simple text format or XML.
- Thanks to many people who have commented regarding OSX. It is helpful to know that you are interested.
- In a technical note, yes we know that to allow the default event handlers to run, we should do the SendEventToEventTarget() and
ReleaseEvent() calls. We did not show that in our example because it does not make a difference in the result. (We will update the example with a comment on that fact.)
So... OSX moves along.
