Attached is an Xcode4 project for those who may want it. This executes on 10.8 Mountain Lion without the need for X11 to be installed, just normal Xcode4 is enough. The only real functional change is that it will not produce PNG files since the PNG libraries are not included in a standard MacOS X computer. However, the other formats are supported. If you choose to use it in early versions that support PPC, you can add the PPC 32/64 to the build settings. It will then build a quad universal binary including 32/64 bit Intel. To make it compile, some tweaks have been made to the source code and these have been listed in the ReadMe in case anyone wants to see what has been changed. After it has been compiled, move the "qrcode" executable to your Desktop for simplicity of testing. You would normally open Terminal and use something like: ~/Desktop/qrcode -t ASCII 'hello world' This will generate a QRCode using "#" for the dots. Other formats exist which you can use. See the documentation included. Depending on your project, you could (subject to legal requirements of the original source being met) use this binary inside your FB app. You can access it via FB for testing using: dim as Str255 myinput dim as Str255 myresult myinput = "~/Desktop/qrcode -t ASCII " + "'hello world'" window 1 text _courier open "Unix", 1, myinput do line input #1, myresult print myresult until eof(1) close 1 RunApplicationEventLoop() In a live example, you would probably embed the binary inside your application bundle, or place the C source inside BeginC/EndC statements in yor FB project? Notice that a mono-proportional font has been used so that it renders properly. Hope it helps, Deep PS: Hope the attachment makes it to the list!
