Problem compiling 2.7 on Mac with CodeWorrier 4

The problems you see originate from differences in the 'Universal' Headers
as distributed with the different versions of CW. I've seen all of these

I think it's <Devices.h> (IIRC). BTW, Mac gurus out there how does one find
out where a certain function is defined in the headers?! There seems to be
nothing short of waiting several hours for having the hard disk indexed (how
I hate this) since I couldn't find any documentation about where functions
are declared in header files (as a matter of fact I wrote myself a little
SqueakUtil that scans the files looking for some string). Any better way of
doing this?!

This has gone away at some time. It's now called 'kCompiledCFragArch'.

Just cast the darn thing. Who cares.

I have. Good luck for ya.
