There are a set of modules that provide interfaces to various MacOS toolboxes. If applicable the module will define a number of Python objects for the various structures declared by the toolbox, and operations will be implemented as methods of the object. Other operations will be implemented as functions in the module. Not all operations possible in C will also be possible in Python (callbacks are often a problem), and parameters will occasionally be different in Python (input and output buffers, especially). All methods and functions have a __doc__ string describing their arguments and return values, and for additional description you are referred to Inside Macintosh or similar works.
Warning! These modules are not yet documented. If you wish to contribute documentation of any of these modules, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
