The Foundation library for mulle-objc

View My GitHub Profile


This is the Foundation library written for mulle-objc.

MulleFoundation is collection of libraries to form a complete and powerful Objective-C class library for mulle-objc. An Objective-C Foundation traditionally contains no graphics code.

The MulleFoundation is designed as plug and play system. Optional library components can be left out with no bad side-effect. The concept of the MulleFoundation is to avoid actual linking into a shared library or executable as much as possible. This has the benefit that an optimizing pass can determine, which parts need to be actually linked and which not.
