Porting to Mac OS X

Post by diki »

just checking since i recently had to give away my pc and was 'forced' to buy a macbook ;) ... i assume that porting ZGE to mac os x would be a herculean effort of translating at least the entire gui to the mac equivalent of whatever windows uses for that?

The next version of Delphi is rumored to be able to compile GUI-applications to Windows, Linux and OS X. So if that appears then porting ZGE Designer tool will at least to possible without a full rewrite.

Meanwhile you should try Parallells or Bootcamp. I've only booted my Mac in OS X mode twice, once which was to start the Boot camp installer for installing Win 7 :)

then I'm REALLY curious to know when this new Delphi version will be out.
In the mean time, Darwine could be a way to go, too...

This is just a random result from searching "wine on macosx" on google.
BTW: on linux under wine, the interface can appear to freeze if you insert components by right click-components. It works fine if you just give a "ctrl-a" or whatever the combination is. If this happens, try pressing "esc". This saved me a few times.
In the fall of 1972 President Nixon announced that the rate of increase of inflation was decreasing. This was the first time a sitting president used the third derivative to advance his case for reelection.
