This example is SimpleText 1.4d16. It's the same source that Apple's built in 1996. We decided that enough developers had asked for SimpleText source so it was time to actually release it. Note that this code is copyright Apple Computer. The standard disclaimers apply. Here's the copyright information again: You may incorporate this sample code into your applications without restriction, though the sample code has been provided "AS IS" and the responsibility for its operation is 100% yours. However, what you are not permitted to do is to redistribute the source as "DSC Sample Code" after having made changes. If you're going to re-distribute the source, we require that you make it clear in the source that the code was descended from Apple Sample Code, but that you've made changes. Requirements: System 7.0 or later Keywords: SimpleText, SimpleText source code, SimpleText Sample
