About Classic Control Menu 1.1
This small application does nothing but adding a menu in the menubar to control the Classic Environment (Start, Stop and Open prefs).
Requires Mac OS X 10.2 only.
Localized in: Dutch, Japanese, Italian, French, English, Spanish and German.
For developers: The application is a bundle and contains an extension called "Statusitem.bundle" which is needed to create the menu. So if you want to change the application and compile it just open the bundle and place the new executable file into the Contents/MacOS/ folder.
- To check if Classic is running, we look whether the application called "Classic support" is running.
- Force Quitting doesn't work without root authentication, so this version doesn't have this option.
- The application may act differently if you have a Mac OS X version without the BSD tools installed. e.g. /usr/bin/open is used.
The localization and the idea is based on a menu extra called "Classic Spy 2.1.2" which does nearly the same job. This application shows how to do this in Realbasic.
This application is freeware and provided as is.
