Mac OS X - "Hello World" in Quartz (Core Graphics)
« on: September 21, 2014, 01:13:16 PM »
Attached is a little "Hello World" demo for Mac OS X, using Quartz (Core Graphics) with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

The demo turns the screen black, prints "Hello, World!" in white Times font at the bottom-left, sleeps for 5 seconds and then exits. The demo also prints "Hello, World!" to the terminal.

To build/run the demo you will need Mac OS X (tested on 10.5 - 10.9), NASM 2.07+ and XCode.

Build instructions are commented at the top of the attached file.

Hey Keith, is there any tutorials that you know of on the net for NASM programming on Mac?
I can't find anything on the internet that works on my Mac except your program.
I am running Max OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan and NASM 2.11.08

Thanks for your input.
