Up to parent directory

The purpose of the files in this directory is to produce Vsys-compatible, classic Macintosh applications with clickable icons. That is done by combining a preassembled object file for the microshell with one or more existing Vsys executables, icon and font resources, and interface glue for the classic Macintosh window system. For example, the Schoonschip application MacSchip contains the shell and the Schip and Medit executables.

The main engine is Maclink, with special options for the shell application Xtop, MacGraph, MVedit, and MacSchip. MacGraph is not included in this distribution.


Maclink.a 10Apr15 17:09:17EDT 15K Produce a Macintosh application with Vsys Block executables from /usr/bin. See the .CPAGE section of the file for details, and the command files below for examples.
Macic.a 10Apr15 17:09:15EDT 11K Incorporate icons with a single application.
Macicon.a 10Apr15 17:09:15EDT 10K Incorporate simple custom icons with a single file.

These files are in MacBinary format to preserve resource forks. Your Macintosh system may or may not automatically decode them when downloaded. If it does not, they can be decoded under OS X by clicking on them, or by running from the command line, for example:

    macbinary decode Schip.ic.bin
    macbinary decode Schip.pic.bin
