I've been going through the listed components in more detail and wonder
if anyone would venture a brief answer to the following.
Relative to Bob's pygame vs. wxPython considerations and for what is
intended for the Mac OS X platform only, how does PyObjC fit into the
equation (functionally, mixing and difficulty wise)?
The "presentation" category of apps I mentioned earlier would be multi
windowed with widgets as in navigating through web pages (but locally
based) and include reinforcing games. There is also a "gaming" app I
want to develop that would allow novices to customize the content of
various types of games and produce standalone high quality executables
of their customized games.
I do plan on doing detailed approach feasibility tests, but would like
to narrow down potential candidates before such. I am learning fast
(despite my age and because I'm no longer embarrassed by asking dumb
questions), and many of you veterans will recognize the changing
"playgrounds" syndrome :~)
