   GNUstep is a set of general-purpose Objective-C libraries based on
the OpenStep standard developed by NeXT (now Apple) Inc. The libraries
consist of everything from foundation classes, such as dictionaries and
arrays, to GUI interface classes such as windows, sliders, buttons, etc.

   nib2gmodel is a tool developed for GNUstep which converts Apple/NeXT
OpenStep 4.x and MacOSX nib files (and perhaps other nib files) to the
GNUstep version of a nib file called a gmodel file.

   Note that nib2gmodel does a pretty good, but not a perfect job of
translating nib files. Since the nib format is not documented,
translation must be done in a round-about way. Coupled with the fact
that different OpenStep systems store GUI elements in different ways
leads to non-optimal translation.  It is likely that you'll have to
hand-edit the gmodel file after translation (Until our interface
manager, Gorm gets up to speed).

   The GNUstep web site at <> contains more


GNUstep nib2gmodel has been compiled (sometime in the past) on the following

   * OpenStep 4.x/m68k

   * OpenStep 4.x/ix86

   * MacOS X Server 1.0

   * MacOS X 10.1

Noteworthy changes in version `0.8.0'

   Bug fixes, including a workaround for a bug in MacOSX 10.1.x.

Where can you get it?

   The nib2model-0.8.0.tar.gz distribution file has been placed on
`' in `pub/gnustep/dev-apps'.

Where do I send bug reports?

   Bug reports can be sent to <address@hidden>.
