Thank you for downloading the source code of ProVoc! Please take a moment to read the following lines: - This source code is available under the BSD license (see below) - This code base is really, really old... Please keep in mind that this software has grown from a simple vocabulary training app that we've written (probably like many of you out there) "just for our own needs". - Be thus accordingly indulgent! We known that the overall structure, the design patterns used, well... almost everything could have been much clearer and much better -- if only we had the same knowledge at that time as today. - If you want to rewrite this app, think seriously about adopting some up-to-date technology (CoreData is beyond any question, so as QTCapture and all sorts of other things) - This code should primarly serve as a reference for those of you who want to write some "importers" for ProVoc vocabulary files. - Please understand that we don't have time anymore to provide support of any kind, or answer questions about the code. Having said that, enjoy developing for Mac OS X -- we can assure you that it's really a fun and inspiring experience! -- Arizona Software The "BSD licence": Copyright (c) 2008 Arizona Software All rights reserved.
