Source Code

See (extern link)SourceForge.net project for developer information.


The following downloads contain the whole source code of my application. If you do not want to occupy with the programming, but only with the simulation, I recommend to download only the simulation.


The following source codes are (extern link)Xcode projects. To use them optimally, you need (extern link)Mac OS X 10.3. The Developer Tools included in Mac OS X 10.2 are partially compatible. To create my application, I used the programming environment (extern link)Cocoa with the programming language (extern link)Objective-C.


The software provided on this website is available under the (extern link)Creative Commons Licence (extern link)ShareAlike 1.0. This means you have the right to copy it, change it, extend it, as long as your product is available under the same or an equivalent licence. The licence is also available on my website licence.


The date written next to the different versions shows when it was last changed.
