Someone mentioned at Mactivity that someone had entered MacHack one year with a program to send Apple Events from Unix. Anyone know anything about this, or where I can find source code to allow a Solaris machine to send Apple Events?

Hi,



Unfortunately, the Apple Event Manager is only support by Apple on the now defunct Apple Network Server. I was the technical tead on a commercial application that used the AEM on the ANS, but to move the solution over to Solaris I had to redesign the transport layer. There is a company in Austrailia (Xedoc) that has a commercial AEM compatible library but I haven't used it (it requires the server to be threaded) so can't comment on it. The company I work for (Information Presentation Technologies) was hoping to take the AEM source code over but things have stalled due to Apple not wanting the Apple Event protocol to become public.
