iMops 1.23 / 2.0 Beta
Native developing environment for Mac OS X.
(iMops has been compiled and built with PowerMops(+Rosetta) by cross-compiling. Excepting that Interface Builder was used to create nib resource file for FWinodow and main Menu, iMops has been created only by PowerMops without any help of C-compiler or assembler. Mops is really powerful language!
Mops stands for Michael Hore's Object-oriented Programming System.)
iMops is a Cocoa application without ObjC garbage collecting (instead, with its own Garbage collect system).
It is designed to build Cocoa applications. So in order to extend iMops classes you should call Cocoa API functions/methods. (However 64bit Carbon function call should be OK. TickCount() or NewHandle() is still alive even in 64bit!)
Mainly because of this fact, iMops is not completely compatible with PowerMops.
iMops is interactive and incremental programming environment. On the other hand, it generates optimized X86 64bit machine code. So the execution of code should be fast.
