Codewarrior Mac

CodeWarrior 10 Gold. Good: An item in used but good condition. May have minor damage to jewel case including scuffs or cracks, or to the item cover including scuffs, scratches, or cracks. CodeWarrior Pro 6 is the latest version that can compile for 68k Macs but it only runs on PPC Macs with OS 8.6 or higher. CodeWarrior Pro 8 is the latest version that will run on a Classic Mac. Pro 7 and later all run in OS X. Installation will vary depending on the version of CodeWarrior you download and where you download it from.

Codewarrior Mac

CodeWarrior Gold provides support for software development in four
different programming languages (C/C++, Object Pascal and Java(tm)), for
five different operating systems (Mac(tm) OS, Windows(R) 95/NT, BeOS(tm),
Magic Cap(tm) and PowerTV(tm)OS), and four different microprocessors (68K,
PowerPC(tm), X86, MIPS(R)), all from one intuitive development environment.
Its unique, modular, front-end/back-end architecture offers true
cross-platform compiling, making it easy to port applications from one
operating system to another. Version 10 brings users a host of new features
to the IDE, enhanced Java and OpenDoc(R) support and new documentation.

Architecture: 68k PPC
Metrowerks CodeWarrior Professional Release 1

CodeWarrior is an integrated development environment (IDE) for the creation of software that runs on a number of embedded systems. Prior to the acquisition of the product by Freescale Semiconductor, versions existed for Macintosh, Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris, PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS, Wii,[1]Palm OS, Symbian OS, and even for BeOS. Currently, C, C++, and Assembly Language are the focus of the tools, though before Metrowerks was acquired by Freescale, versions of CodeWarrior included Pascal, Object Pascal, Objective-C, and Java compilers as well.



CodeWarrior was originally developed by Metrowerks based on a C compiler and environment for the Motorola 68K, developed by Andreas Hommel and licensed to Metrowerks. The first versions of CodeWarrior targeted the PowerPC Macintosh, with much of the development done by a group from the original THINK C team. Much like THINK C, which was known for its fast compile times, CodeWarrior was faster than Macintosh Programmer's Workshop (MPW), the development tools written by Apple.

CodeWarrior was a key factor in the success of Apple's transition of its machine architecture from 68K processors to PowerPC because it provided a complete, solid PowerPC compiler when the competition (Apple's MPW tools and Symantec C++) was mostly incomplete. Metrowerks also made it easy to generate fat binaries which included both 68K and PowerPC code.

However, after Metrowerks was acquired by Motorola in 1999, the company concentrated on embedded applications, devoting a smaller fraction of their efforts to compilers for desktop computers. On 29 July 2005, they announced that CodeWarrior for Mac would be discontinued after the next release, CodeWarrior Pro 10. Although Metrowerks did not detail their reasons, the demand for CodeWarrior had presumably fallen after Apple began distributing free development tools with Mac OS X. In addition, Apple's switch to Intel chips left Metrowerks without an obvious product as they had sold their Intel compiler technology to Nokia earlier in 2005.

Older versions of CodeWarrior are still in use by retrocomputing enthusiasts on the classic Mac OS; among other projects, Classilla is currently built with it.[2]

During its heyday, the product was known for its rapid release cycle, with multiple revisions every year, and for its quirky advertising campaign. Their 'geekware' shirts were featured in the fashion pages of the New York Times.[3]

Origin of the name

Codewarrior Download For Mac

During the 1990s, Apple Computer released a monthly series of developer CD-ROMs containing resources for programming the Macintosh. These CDs were, in the early days, whimsically titled using punning references to various movies but with a coding twist; for example, 'The Hexorcist' (The Exorcist), 'Lord of the Files' (Lord of the Flies), 'Gorillas in the Disc' (Gorillas in the Mist), etc.[4]


One of these, volume 9, was titled 'Code Warrior', referring to the movie Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. Later Apple dropped the whimsical titling in favour of a more sober 'Developer CD series'. Coincidentally the Metrowerks founder, Greg Galanos, an Australian, was also inspired by the movie and proposed the CodeWarrior name. Metrowerks subsequently used the name for their new developer product.

CodeWarrior CD packaging was very much in the tradition of the Apple developer CDs, featuring slogans such as 'Blood, Sweat, and Code' in prominent lettering. Competing products such as Symantec's THINK C were more conventionally marketed.
