    Post What's the easiest way to develop software for 68k Macs?

    Hi there!

    Do you know the easiest way to develop software for 68k Macs?
    I only know one programming language for them, called AppleScript. Can you recommend another?

    The basic interpreter for macs should be easy enough to find. I imagine there was a basic.compiler. Up the difficulty ladder would be Pascal. Then C. Then assembler.

    It's too early. I recently sold Quick Basic for the Mac. I may have scanned the manuals. I don't have disks or copies, but that can be downloaded from somewhere. It's a compiler.

    Try HyperCard with its scripting language, HyperTalk.

    I started with Turbo Pascal for Mac, then moved to APW (Apple Programmer's Workshop) which had both Pascal and C++ support. After that I moved to CodeWarrior (I think the last version to support System 7/8/9 was CodeWarrior Pro 8.

    Most of that stuff can be found here: https://www.macintoshrepository.org

    Also, a lot of the original docs by Apple were in Pascal, since that's what they used internally to build the first couple of Finder/System combos.
