Chac is a mesoamerican calendar for the Macintosh. You may have seen the original version of this program called Mac Maya. When I wrote Mac Maya I was learning to program in C and use the Macintosh API. This is a complete rewrite of that program. I threw away most of my source code and started over. My goal was to write structured code, a more powerful program with all of the features a serious researcher would want, a better user interface and better graphics. In other words, a more powerful and cooler program.


This is a fat binary and runs on 68k and PPC Macs. You need System 7 or greater. It needs 348k of RAM but 1 megabyte is recommended. It runs on black and white monitors and looks OK but I wrote it to work on my colour monitor. When OS X is released I will probably create a carbon compliant version. This version was developed with Metrowerks CodeWarrior 6 which is the last release that will support 68k code. This is the last Chac that will run on a 68k machine.
