Easy-to-Use Tools Suite is Ideal for Hobbyists and Novice Programmers

1/8/2003 - Metrowerks is introducing CodeWarriorTM Development Studio, Mac OS X Edition at an introductory price of US$99 until February 28, 2003. Programmers writing applications for Mac® OS X now have a low cost choice when it comes to development tools.

As a subset of Metrowerks’ CodeWarrior Development Studio for Mac OS, Professional Edition, Version 8, the Mac OS X Edition is ideal for hobbyists and novices because it contains essentially the same development tools used by professional programmers and includes features designed to simplify the development process.

One such feature is Code Completion, which provides fast access to the prototypes and parameters of any function in a project. Code Completion enables programmers to write code more quickly without stopping to look up hard-to-remember functions and symbols.

Furthermore, the Mac OS X Edition enables programmers to build either C++ applications using the Metrowerks PowerPlantTM Framework or Objective-C applications using Apple’s CocoaTM framework.

Like the professional CodeWarrior products, the Mac OS X Edition is built on the graphical CodeWarrior integrated development environment (IDE), which combines everything programmers need in one easy to use tools suite. The IDE includes an advanced project manager, build system, source code editor, compilers, linkers, debuggers, class browser, and more.
