Carbon Programming Tutorial

Apple removed the Carbon Moon Travel Planner tutorial from their website, but thank goodness for caches! In the upper right corner of this website, you can get the tutorial for Carbon programming in various file formats!

It's sorta weird how Apple didn't completely port Carbon to 64-bit, but the Finder is written in Carbon. Want proof? /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/AboutWindow.nib

If you open the inspector, you'll see various Carbon-only things, like Controls, Commands, 4chr, etc. And most of the library things are HI*.

Note: you need the Developer Tools to view nib files
