is a popular application framework
for the Apple Macintosh
, based on Carbon
. Written exclusively in C++
, it was designed as a much smaller and manageable alternative to the popular, but now defunct Think Class Library (TCL) from Symantec
, and later, Powerplant framework from Metrowerks. MacZoop was developed continually from 1994 until 2003, and was available for free. In the face of continuing development of the Cocoa
framework and the Project Builder tools from Apple for OS X
, further MacZoop development was discontinued in 2003.
