#3905 closed enhancement (invalid)

Erroneous/unusable code in BeBook

Description

The BeBook examples need to be checked and tested to ensure they compile and work as expected/advertised.

A great example of the junk that has been included is in "System Overview->Application Kit->Be Application" where the example of how to create a Be Application doesn't work, and didn't work as long ago as R4.

We can't change that. The BeBook is provided as is and the copyright belongs to ACCESS. We're only authorized to redistribute it.

So we can't even update the API reference? Might as well junk the thing then.

There is work in progress towards a new "Haiku book" - but since that is obviously a lot of work, and only very few people work on this, it'll take some time. Until then, the outdated BeBook is a lot better than nothing.
