Is this on OSX ?


I thought that might be how its done -

Actually, as I understood the aim of CF is, to have foundation functionality also for other languages. That's at least what I've been told from an Apple employee.

or else
make CFArray a wrapper for NSArray (which is how I considered doing
it on GNUstep)

I would do the same in Gnustep.

It could be. Depending, on how this kind soul implements it.

:-) I has assumed it was a straight port of the CF source code. An idea
would be to simply port those bits of the CF source which dont bridge, and then make those which do into a wrapper round the existing GNUstep implementations
of NSArray etc...

So, how *are* you implementing it ?

I try to not use CF. But the Map thing is quite useful. So I made an object out of it. Behind it I could also use GS Map.

I do agree with that. But I would like to repeat here, that when we got it into the minds of those programmers, that GS is a viable possibility
to open the Windows and Linux market afterwards, that they would try
not to use CF. The few moments, where Cocoa doesn't offer an

You are more optimistic than me in that case! I also think its a catch 22 situation - that the more special cases the OSX people need to take on board in
order to use GNUstep, the less likely they are to do so.

Of course. But CF is not so huge. Most of it is covered in Cocoa. So for these few cases, I'm optimistic, that we gonna find a solution.
