What is fizzilla ?
Fizzilla is mozilla operated on Mac OS X. Because it is carbonized mozilla, it seems to be called fizzilla.
Mr. Yatsugi : Why is it called fizzilla ?
Binary forms that can be executed on Mac OS X belong to one of the two kinds.
In mozilla, both forms of fizilla are attempted.
Between the two, FizzillaMach is still on the testing stage.
FizzillaCFM is already running on Mac OS X Public Beta.
At present, the main developer of FizzillaCFM Mr. Patric Beard suggested making the whole building of mozilla for Macintosh carbonized. If it is put into practice, the whole building of mozilla for Macintosh including building of fizzilla will be modified widely.
It is needless to check out the source code from the beginning. The same source code of mozilla itself is adapted to Carbon. It is almost complete.
Environment for building
In building of fizzilla, it is necessary to construct a new environment on CodeWarrior and modify the source code of mozilla.
Way of building
The way of building fizzilla is, in the case of script of new version, in
and build it.
Of course, if you have built normal mozilla once, then build fizilla, all the result of normal mozilla will disappear. So, it is better to build in a new mozilla source tree.
Embedding of fizzilla
Embedding of fizzilla is to go through two stages ( as you expect ), that is
Carbonization of embedding application [PPBrowser]
Because PPBrowser is made of the PowerPlant framework, it will be carbonized automatically by compile-linking again with CodeWarrior Pro6. (a little adjustment may be necessary...)
You may be anxious becuse fizzilla itself is built by Pro5+Pro6's MSL and PPBrowser is built by Pro6, but I think this will work correctly.
Carbonization of embedding application [marbrow]
Because marbrow is made of an original framework, this must be carbonized all the way by hand. The project of marbrow is for CodeWarrior Pro5, but the project of marbrowCargon is for CodeWarrior Pro6. I did this because the carbonization with Pro 6 is easier than with Pro 5.
The actual way and information of the carbonization can be gotten from the site of Apple.
Mr. Koike : I will create Generator for Macintosh adapting to Carbon !
