A little help?

Tuesday, April 15, 2008 by Dave Winer.

I woke up the other day motivated to learn XCode 3.0 and make some small improvements to the OPML Editor. I want to add a few verbs that make it easier to monitor object databases that grow large. I would have put these features in years ago if I knew that this would be the big hassle in keeping a server-side OPML app running.  Permalink to this paragraph

So I tried getting it to compile, but the Mac headers are a moving target and now there are lots of warnings about things being deprecated (these obviously aren't deal-stoppers) but there are also errors.  Permalink to this paragraph

It's been a long time since I worked in C on the Mac, so I thought I'd ask for help. If you're a Mac developer and have a few spare cycles, what changes are necessary to get the project to build? Permalink to this paragraph

The source code is here. Permalink to this paragraph

Any help would be much appreciated. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph
