Welcome to USENET Macintosh Programmers Guide Volume I
This is the first attempt at creating a document for the readers of USENET that deals with Macintosh programming. The first section of this volume is a collection of USENET postings that have appeared in the famous "comp.sys.mac.programmer" newsgroup. This section includes articles on things that you should know when programming the Macintosh, common questions and answers that might help you when you have a problem or general knowledge you should have to prevent you from making a mistake. I started this as a guide for myself because so much information gets posted to the net, its hard to remember it all. Other people seemed interested in the guide so I decided to publish it.
The second part of this guide are articles that people have donated either to me directly when they heard that I was going to publish my guide or articles that have appeared on the net. Hopefully when I get around to making version two of this thing, more people will donate sample code to make this guide more complete. I hope to either include a beginner's section or maybe make it a totally separate volume.
So enjoy, and I hope that this guide helps you as much as it has helped me.
Any questions, comments, or code segements can be sent to me at the addresses listed below. I will include them in the next update.

I would like to thank all those people that sent me articles and have donated their free time to answer questions on the net. It is you who are doing a great service to the Mac programming community. I am only the messenger.
