Free Soft for MAC
Sorry, this page is under construction
I'd like to distribute freely all soft for Mac we have created
for our own convinuence, both in binary and source forms.
All packages are prepared in Think C / Symantec C++
environment. You can download the self-extracting Compact Pro archives,
converted by BinHex to *.hqx text files. You need BinHex 4.0 (or CompactPro,
which understands *.hqx files), installed on your Mac, to decode .hqx file back
to self-extracting archive.
decodes the *.hqx files, ignoring ";I" flag in html-source, that should
prevent brouser from automatic decoding.
It produces nasty results, when Netscape types non-printable file
in the window. And the main point is that we cannot save the decoded
file in Unix or MS Windows, copy it to diskette and then read diskette
on Mac: Mac file has also the resource fork, which is lost!
To prevent Netscape from decoding *.hqx files, I have to rename them.
For instance, I renamed the file "mimsea.hqx" to "mim_hqx.bin".
But really it is the BinHex text file, not a binary one.
The following programs are available:
- MicroMir text editor.
Intended mostly for programmers, who do not need
various fonts, pictures etc.,
but need, for instance, to edit large files > 64K,
to jump fastly from c-file to h-file and so on.
- Game "Lines"
(gather balls of same color in a row/column/diagonal of length
5 or more). The source of it in Think C.
(Both files are *.sit.hqx archives, the ".bin" extension is added to
prevent Netscape from automatic decoding.)
The programs for convertion of text files, possibly with Russian letters,
from Mac to PC and inverse. The programs are available
for both Mac and PC platforms.
The Mac version of the popular in Moscow program
(written by A. Shen'), that converts text file with
Russian letters into ASCII text, to send via e-mail. The main
difference with uuencode / uudecode or MIME
is that you can read the
encoding text without decoding. (I'd like this method
to be the standard in Russia, but, unfortunately, the common practice
is to send Russian e-mail in KOI8 encoding with 8-bit characters;
this is very unreliable way without any warranties.)
Some small programs for people, who begin to study C/C++ and
programming with MAC ToolBox. All are prepared in
Think C / Symantec C++ environment.
Demo-version of Kumir system for Russian school algorithmic language.
