From 1998 to 2002 I ran a Macintosh software company called Squirrel Software. I was 14 years old when I launched my first product. After the company grew, we acquired a piece of software called Visual MacStandardBasic. It was similar to Visual Basic for Windows, but it ran on the Macintosh. 12 years later, the product is only a memory for most people who once used it. It won’t run on any current versions of Mac OS and I doubt there is still a valid download link on the internet for it. If there is, nobody would be able to activate the software.
I am releasing the source code to the world. This is released under a brand new code license which I call the “Take a kid fishing or hunting license” which means in order to use this code in your project, you MUST take a kid fishing or hunting, along with other minor restrictions. You will probably need a Macintosh running Mac OS 9.2.2 or earlier with a copy of Metrowerks Codewarrior to compile this code. The resource forks are stripped but you can download the binary and extract the necessary resource forks from that. It probably isn’t much use anymore but the parser is still probably of use to some.
