The original source was obtained from this site.
I have no idea how to make this compile or run. This repository was created as a means of archiving a piece of history. The original software was written on a NextStep computer, using NextStep specific APIs. (And no, they are not compatible with Cocoa. I checked.)
It may be possible to build and run this on a NextStep emulator such as Previous, but I don't know if anyone has tried and succeeded.
If you ever do get this to run, please let me know!
IMPORTANT: Get and read the files COPYRIGHT and CERN before downloading other files. This directory contains binaries for the NeXTSTEP Web browser application. ________________________________________________________________________ THE EDITOR WorldWideWeb_0.16.tar.Z is the only wysiwyg hypertext editor for the NeXT. It has limitations and bugs -- it can't access Gopher, FTP sites, etc. But it is a hypertext editor! Note this app is compiled for NextStep 3.0 and won't work with 2.1. There is no way round this; don't ask! (The Project file is converted by the ProjectBuilder to a version 3 project file when you first compile for version 3. The version 3 project file won't work with 2.0 (Interface builder and project builder shared a file and an app in 2.x), and so there is no going back! The 3.x app won't work under 2.x as it needs 3.x shared libaries.) THE BROWSER The file labelled 1.0 is a pre-alpha browser which uses the libwww library, so you can get multimedia files etc etc. Does doc format conversion, etc. THE EDITOR DOES NOT WORK. NOT SUPPORTED.... It can't edit -- try and it will destroy your files! Only for the curious. This DOES handle Gopher, FTP, etc. Sorry they have the same icon now ... can be very confusing if you use both. timbl ________________________________________________________________________ [Also, note that the WorldWideWeb_2.01* and WWW.app_2.02* files untar into an application called Nexus.app, rather than WorldWideWeb.app . ---Jay Sekora <email@example.com>, August 1995]
