Customizing Xcode


While searching for ways to add scripts to the scripts menu in
Xcode,
I ran across
this
page
.
Following the links led me to Apple’s documentation on scripting Xcode.
Here are links to a
local web page
for people with Mac OS X and the dev tools installed, and the
online version at Apple.

The short shrift is that you can use Perl and shell scripts to do things to the files in your project.
Personally, the first one I am writing is the equivalent of the ‘ww’ shell alias, which strips the ‘uchg’ flag from a file.
‘uchg’ makes a file non-writable, even if its Unix permissions are rw-rw-rw-.
It’s used by
Perforce
to force you to “edit” files before modifying them
— a completely outmoded way of doing things, of course.
