This article is from the MachTen & CodeBuilder FAQ, by Jaime Julca jjulca@tenon.com with numerous contributions by others.

73 c. I am trying to port some apps to MachTen. Which vendor's UNIX isclosest to MachTen?

Since MachTen is a straight BSD port, anything BSD is a good choice. If the
source has flags for BSD, it's a great place to start. The next best are
NexT or SunOS. You will have to recompile anything that was not compiled for
MachTen. O'Reilly has a good book on porting UNIX programs.

G8.d. Why does Tenon have two CD's of ported apps?

Ported Apps Volume 1 is for Professional MachTen. Volume is applications for
Power MachTen.

G8.e. Why does Tenon suggest purchasing Ported Apps Volume 2 for use with
CodeBuilder?

Two reasons. First, Ported Apps extends CodeBuilder's suite to include
advanced UNIX-based tools. Second, Ported Apps comes with over 200 MB of
source code, which can be used to develop UNIX-based or standalone Macintosh
applications.
