MacTech Magazine Releases CD History

MacTech Magazine has announced the availability of the MacTech CD-ROM. The new CD contains the entire history of MacTech Magazine, covering 1984-2001, and includes over 2,200 articles. This looks to be a great addition to a Macintosh information resource collection. According to MacTech Magazine:

MacTech Magazine, the Journal of Macintosh Technology and Development, announced today the release of the MacTech CD-ROM (volumes 1-17) now updated through April 2001.

Debuting at Appleis World Wide Developer Conference in San Jose, the MacTech CD-ROM includes the entire history of MacTech Magazine. With over 2,200 articles from over 700 industry experts in Macintosh programming, networking, and technology, the MacTech archives represent an incredible resource to the fundamental Apple technologies and an essential reference for Mac programmers.

Running from 1984 through April 2001, the MacTech archives span the history of Macintosh. This wealth of tutorials, introductions to new technologies, and how to articles have been compiled into databases for the THINK Reference system.

The THINK Reference Viewer (included on the CD-ROM) is explicitly supported by all major Macintosh development environments -- including CodeWarrior, Symantec C++, Object Master, and BBEdit. Simply select text in these environments and use a command key combination to bring THINK Reference forward and search for that API or keyword.

Also included on the MacTech CD is the complete run of Appleis develop magazine, the FrameWorks journal, and Appleis original Inside Macintosh technical reference -- all in THINK Reference format. A wealth of source code, shareware, demos, and special offers are also included on the CD-ROM.

Owners can extend the MacTech collection with the THINK Reference Compiler included on the CD-ROM. Now with support for AppleEvents and larger make files, the THINK Reference Compiler will convert HTML directories into a single, compact, THINK Reference database. Owners of the MacTech CD can extend the reference collection by adding their own databases from HTML sources.

The MacTech CD-ROM - Volumes 1-17 is available for US$119. You can find more information at the MacTech Magazine Web site.
