I've heard that Codewarrior provides a version of MFC that will let you compile MFC apps on a Mac. Is that true? I'm not looking for full support with all the myriad features, but only basic UI stuff like dialogs, menus, and controls. And for the Linux version?

thanks for any info,
Trails

I'm sorry, I'm going to have to reject that, because I know for a fact that Codewarrior supports MFC -- it says so in its product description. I'm looking for the degree of support.
thanks,

ok, you can leave the question and see if someone really knows if there is such a compiler for the Mac... I won't argue because it is my opinioon and not a fact...

I use CodeWarrior Pro 4 to develop industrial MFC applications for Windows 95/98/NT. All the development process is conducted on a Mac, including compiling. MFC support in CodeWarrior is complete (you get the latest version of the libraries, and you can create all the interface elements you need, such as menus, dialogs and so on). This means you can create a complete 32-bit Windows application, with support for Windows' advanced features and tools. Metrowerks Graphical Resource Editor only runs on Windows, though, so you have to write resource scripts (for dialog layout, etc.) by hand, which is an easy but rather lengthy process since you don't see your dialogs as you edit them, like in ResEdit, and you have to compile and run the app in order to test the changes. I suggest that you have a Windows machine (or better yet, SoftWindows/Virtual PC) to speed up interface development. The bottom line is, CodeWarrior is a great Mac environment for developing complete Windows apps, but the lack of a graphical resource editor makes it a bit longer to create dialogs.

CodeWarrior Pro 4 does not support development for UNIX or Linux platforms.
