Thank you. The help file was remarkably ambiguous on this basic point

Not quite what I wanted to know. In Windows you can do it all with
the SDK, or the MFC. So, I had hoped to find out what you do in the
Mac world, and how to do it for cross-platform portability. No
doubt there are some frameworks around.

Thank you for the suggestion, although if I didn't know how to program
I certainly wouldn't be well advised to start there, would I. But the
site seems to have some intros to your toolset, which is what I was
after, so thank you for the tip!
All the best,
