Sample code to accompany Chapter 12 of "An Introduction to Macintosh Programming for Windows Programmers". This sample contains a series of six C++ sample programs used to illustrate how to write a simple Macintosh application. The samples use the Metrowerks PowerPlant applications framework, which ships as part of the CodeWarrior Integrated Development environment.
