Carbon isn’t so bad

Apple, Java, Tech, UI / UX Add comments

All the love is for Cocoa. Why does Carbon get such a bad rap? I never looked into it much, but just last week a friend talked about how he thought Carbon was a poor mans solution, until he actually spent some time on it too. And, he found that it was actually not a bad solution, especially with the Java bindings.

James Duncun Davidson has also just written that Sometimes Carbon isn’t so Bad.

    It depends on what you are doing. I use carbon calls all the time in my cocoa apps, you just can’t get by without it and it really isn’t all that bad. But if I ever had to do a 100% carbon app (making windows and handling events the carbon way) I think I’d shoot myself. Maybe it isn’t that Carbon is “bad”, it’s just that Cocoa is so good.

    I don’t have a Mac, but I did use to code nEXtStEp (4.0). I just can’t get by without garbage collection anymore … and I believe Cocoa is still using reference counting.
