PROJECT file extension - Apple Project Builder for WebObjects project
What is project file? How to open project files?
File type specification:
project file icon:
The PROJECT file extension was used in older versions of Project Builder. The default file extension now is the .pbproj.
Apple provides a powerful set of developer tools with Mac OS X. Originally developed by NeXT for programmers working with Objective-C, the tools have since evolved for use with a wide range of source languages, including Java, C++, and AppleScript. The Xcode developer tools package also includes the system header files and a C compiler, so it is an essential addition for anyone who wants a complete BSD Unix environment. At the heart of Mac OS X’s developer tools is a full-featured text editor and IDE called Xcode.
Though normally used with applications built with the Carbon and Cocoa frameworks, Project Builder is an excellent tool for Web developers working in languages like PHP and Perl. Along with a standard Apple graphical interface, it also provides emacs-style key bindings that will be familiar to Unix users: keys combinations like Ctrl-A or Ctrl-E can be used to move the cursor to the beginning or end of a line. Its syntax colorizer recognizes comments and quoted strings in a variety of languages, making source code easier to read. It is tightly integrated with CVS, a software management system commonly used in the open source community. When dealing with a large number of files, Project Builder allows the developer to sort the files into groups for easier navigation. It offers multiple editor windows, split views, and a powerful multi-file search-and-replace facility that can search for either plain text strings or a regular expressions.
Other tools bundled in the developer package include GNU Autoconf, both the BSD and GNU versions of make, and a useful application called FileMerge, which provides a graphical interface to the Unix diff utility. Project Builder uses FileMerge to display the differences between two versions of a file and allows developers to merge changes from the CVS repository into a new version. Some of the best features in the Developer Tools turn out to be of little use for Web scripting, though, such as the graphical Interface Builder and the excellent interaction between Project Builder and the gdb debugger.
