New Tool Provides Code To Get Developers Jumpstarted

Sig Software has updated MADE to version 1.7.5. MADE is a package of C++ code containing some of the most basic code for creating both Carbon and Classic Macintosh applications. MADE provides developers with the basic building blocks, allowing them to save time and minimize errors. According to Sig Software:

Sig Software is proud to announce the release of MADE 1.7.5, a small package of C/C++ code which provides all the lowest-level needs for a Macintosh application, for both the Classic and Carbon APIs.

MADEis most valuable feature is its glue code which provides a unified wrapper for much of the Classic and Carbon APIs. This allows developers to use a single source code base to build versions of their software that run natively on OS 7 through to OS X, with no CarbonLib required.

MADE was developed in-house at Sig Software for use in our own programs - Analog Helper, Cross Platform, Drop Drawers, Email Effects and TableText are all based entirely on the framework. It includes several features to help the development process, such as assertions, memory trashing, allocation tracking and leak testing.

Version 1.7.5 is updated for full compatibility with the latest CodeWarrior 6 compiler and Carbon headers, adds more accessors and functions to the Classic/Carbon glue code, debug-friendly error reporting and more.

MADE is available for US$20. You can find more information at the Sig Software Web site.
