makefiles and a sort-of-unix-like command-line environment are available
in MPW Shell, which is available for free somewhere near
The MPW-based powerpc C and C++ compiler (MrCpp, also free from apple)
can generate the more highly-optimized code than Metrowerks. Some
developers can get a 10% or faster speed increase in their compiled code
by switching to MrCpp for their final build. Also, gcc, gawk, flex,
bison, and other gnu tools have also been ported to MPW shell. MPW Shell
been around for at least 10 years, though it has been free (but still not
open source) only the last year or so.
