Great set of tools for developing for classic Macs. Plenty of documentation (including whole books in PDF format) and a great toolset including C, C++, Java and Pascal compilers. The only "problem" is that it's 68K-only, but given how many people run Basilisk as their main emulator, that might not be that big a handicap as it once was.

This is the tool I used when I was a kid to learn C++ programming.
Lot's of memories come with it so I love it, despite the fact it could not compile PPC code.

Ho and, please, be kind concerning screenshot's content ... I was a 18 year old sef-educated programmer when I wrote this Tongue
