Maybe small discovery about Bonjour & Mac OS 9...

Nope, I'm not crazy


Open Source - Internet & Web - Bonjour


Click for the latest stable release (mDNSResponder-107.6.tar.gz) but,


http://opensource.apple.com/darwinsource/t...er-108.6.tar.gz is the latest version (dated from july of '07). Inside is a folder called "mDNSMacOS9"


On the Apple Mailing Lists for Bonjour, it was confirmed(back in 2004) that this folder contains the sourcecode for


a system extension that you can build and install on Mac OS 9, and it exports the same socket-based DNSServiceDiscovery API that's available on Mac OS X, Windows, and POSIX.


The slight problem is that it appears that the source code was coded using CodeWarriors. The reason that I bring this up is I have an old iMac DV 400 Mhz running OS 9 & probably am going to pick up an airport card from Macsales.com. But, alas, I lack the knowledge (or CodeWeavers itself for that matter) to compile this extension for OS 9.


Might anyone have any experience compiling things in CodeWarriors and/or porting the code to xCode ?


Any help would be greatly appreciated

I dunno about compiling OS 9 projects with Xcode, but importing a CodeWarrior project to Xcode is simple:




Just import it and click the build button, but when importing stuff there can always be errors so it may not be that easy. The latest version of Xcode, version 3, doesn't have the importer so you will have to download Xcode 2.
