Core Foundation download?

Discussion in 'Programmer Misc' started by Victor Eijkhout, Aug 11, 2009.

  1. Apple's web site says that CF is open source; there is mention of a
    CF-lite product; but I can't find any download link, on the regular site
    or in ADC.

    Help?

    Here's my context: I'm support for a linux cluster, and a user wants to
    port an appication that was developed on a Mac. So I'm not looking for
    statements that CF is included in Xtools or so, I would really like a
    download so that I can install it on my cluster.

    Victor.

    If it's pure C, no graphics elements, just CF for nifty language
    constructs?

    What you're probably looking more for is something like GNUstep:

    Porting ease will depend on how many advanced features you used in
    developing the application for the Mac.
