AppleScript, from Apple Computer, Inc., is a scripting language for the Macintosh.
Current version is 1.1.
FaceSpan, from Digital Technology International, is an interface/application generator for AppleScript. It enables you to build standalone Macintosh applications with custom windows and menus, using AppleScript as its programming language. Way cool!
Script Debugger, from Mark Alldritt , is an AppleScript development environment. Scripts can be longer than 32K, because WASTE (see below) is used as the text editing engine. SD is also user-extensible. Mark is the author of the Script Tools 1.3.5 osaxen package (1.4 ships with SD) and the MacPPP Control 1.4 osax.
CodeWarrior Gold, from Metrowerks Inc., is an integrated development environment containing C, C++, and Pascal compilers for both Macintosh (68K) and Power Macintosh (PowerPC). Now how much would you pay? Sorry, no Ginsu knives! (well, actually...)
Think Pascal, from Symantec Corporation, is a very nice development system for the Macintosh. A number of cool programs have been written in it, such as WASTE, a >32K styled text editing engine by Marco Piovanelli , styled text editors which use that engine (Style 1.4.3 by the same author, and Tex-Edit Plus 1.8.5 by Tom Bender ), and others.
Current version is 4.0 (though I only used 2.0 and 3.0 before switching to CW).
Addendum:Tex-Edit Plus 1.5 and later are now developed in CW, as Think Pascal appears to no longer be supported by Symantec.
ProTERM Mac, from InTrec Software, Inc., is a telecommunications program with a powerful macro language, built-in text editor (handles large files), multiple session support, Telnet via TCP/IP, ADSP, PC-ANSI, redefinable shortcut keys, and top-notch support.
