Mac developers may be interested in a new developer tool for Mac OS X and an update of Ch Control System.

Developer Darrell Walisser has released a public beta release of
ConvertMake, a new tool for Mac OS X that automates the conversion of makefile or other script-based systems into Project Builder projects.
It offers the ability to convert nearly any system that uses the GNU toolset (gcc, libtool, etc.) and to import multiple source trees into a single project, according to
MacTech magazine. ConvertMake can also create static library, dynamic library, tool, application, and framework targets.
The primary design goal of ConvertMake was to support as many different configurations possible, Walisser said. To do this, the developer tool doesn’t parse makefiles or other build configuration files, but instead runs the build commands/scripts normally, but intercepts commands sent to the core build tools to gather information. The final version will be released as either trialware or shareware.
In other developer related news,
has released version 1.5 of their Ch Control System Toolkit. Ch is a superset of C interpreter for scripting, 2D/3D plotting, and numerical computing. Ch Control System Toolkit is designed for modeling, design, and analysis of continuous-time or discrete-time linear time invariant (LTI) control systems.
Ch Control System 1.5 enhances the Web-based control and analysis capabilities, according to MacTech. It supports most classical and modern control techniques through object-oriented programming based on a control class.
Ch Control System Toolkit costs US$499 for the regular commercial version, but $199 for academic users. It’s compatible with Mac OS X, as well as Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP, Linux, Solaris, and HP-UX.
