Brian, you probably mean the 'Project Builder' project - FLAC sources
don't have an Xcode project (the 1.1.2 Xcode project I mentioned was
the one I offered some time ago on the list). And I agree - despite
the '1.1.4' string appearing in the project file it seems to be
'structurally' seriously out-dated. Josh, perhaps something could be
done with it? At the moment it seems to me to be more confusing than

XiphQT uses and contains an Xcode project for building the most basic
FLAC elements. The project files are now included in XiphQT's sources
and can be found in:


(I've just updated it to work correctly with FLAC 1.1.4). At the
moment it only builds static libs and frameworks for FLAC and FLAC++,
without ogg support, no tools, no tests and expects to find FLAC
sources in a specific relative location. But I suppose you could use
it as a starting point in creating a full equivalent of the FLAC's
autotools-based build system.

I'd be happy to check any changes into XiphQT's repository, but to
have it checked into FLAC's repository you would need to ask Josh.
