-The NeXT support has now been incorproated into the OpenStep support.
+The NeXT support has now been incorporated into the OpenStep support.
You can build NeXT libraries simply by typing "make next", though before
linking they will need to be ranlib'd by hand. For more information see
the README.OpenStep file, together with the README files in OpenStep/Old_Demos.

-This is a port of Mesa-3.0 to OpenStep and Rhapsody/YellowBox. Only
-the GL and GLU libraries have been ported. As OpenStep has it's own
-window handling code we simply use the offscreen rendering capability
-of Mesa to generate a bitmap which can then be drawn into a View. An
-example application using Mesa can be found in OpenStep/MesaView.
-Currently only static libraries are built. The code has been tested on the
-Intel hardware version of the following systems:
+This is a port of the GL and GLU libraries to NeXT/Apple object
+orientated systems. As these systems have their own window handling
+systems we simply use the offscreen rendering capability of Mesa

+with a View as required. Example pieces of code may be found in the
+OpenStep directory.
- OpenStep for Mach 4.2
- Rhapsody (DR1)
- YellowBox for NT4 (DR1)
+Sadly there are now a proliferation of different system that we need to
+support compilation for: The original NextStep system, The OpenStep
+system, the Rhapsody/Mac OS X system and also the windows implementations
+of the latter two systems. This version of the code has been compiled and
+tested under the following architectures:
-It should, however, work on all other variants of OpenStep for other
-processors without modification. Feedback on this would be appreciated.
+ NextStep 3.3
+ OpenStep 4.2
+ Rhapsody DR2
+ WebObjects for NT 3.5
+ WebObjects for NT 4.0
-To build on UNIX based systems simply type "make openstep".
+All tests were done with Intel processors. Feedback on other systems would,
+however, be appreciated !
-To build on Win95/WinNT based systems run the "" script from
-the Bourne shell provided with the development environment.
+On UNIX systems simply type "make openstep". Under Windows systems
+with WebObjects run the "" script from within the Bourne
+shell provided with the development environment. In both cases this will
+build the libraries and place them into the "lib" directory. Some examples
+may be found in the OpenStep directory showing how to use the code in an
+actual application (MesaView) as well as some command line demos.
-Thiss build the libraries, places them in the "lib" directory and also builds
-the "MesaView" example application. Older examples may be found in the
-OpenStep/Old_Demos directory. These only work on UNIX based systems. The CC
-variable is passed around by the Makefiles so fat libraries may be created
-by alreting this on the command line, e.g. for m68k and i486 support you
-can use the command "make CC='cc -arch m68k -arch i386' openstep".
+The CC variable may be specified on the command line for doing such things
+as building FFAT libraries or using alternative compilers to the standard 'cc'
+e.g. make CC='cc -arch m68k -arch i386' openstep" will build the libraries
+with both intel and motorola architectures.
