Inside Macintosh: Advanced Color Imaging on the Mac OS /
Preface - About This Book

Development Environment

The system software functions described in this book are available using C or assembly-language interfaces. How you access these functions depends on the development environment you are using. This book shows system software routines in their C interface using the Macintosh Programmer's Workshop (MPW).

All code listings in this book are shown in C (except for listings that describe resources, which are shown in Rez-input format). They show methods of using various routines and illustrate techniques for accomplishing particular tasks. All code listings have been compiled and, in most cases, tested. However, Apple Computer does not intend that you use these code samples in your application. You can find the location of this book's code listings in the list of figures, tables, and listings.

To make the code listings in this book more readable, only limited error handling is shown. You need to develop your own techniques for detecting and handling errors.
