Programmer’s Guide to MacApp.
This document explains the theory and architecture behind MacApp, describes the programming features MacApp supports, and supplies sample code and step-by-step instructions for implementing a variety of program features.

This edition of the Programmer’s Guide describes MacApp version 3.3.3. Version numbering for MacApp changed after 3.3.3, so that the next major version was called Release 12. The most recent version of MacApp is Release 13, Update 4. Though Release 13 changed many routine names and altered the file structure for MacApp, the Programmer’s Guide is still useful for working with MacApp.

The ACS Network Suite guide describes MacApp’s network framework as of Release 13. It includes sample code and is available in a PDF version only.
