In this chapter, you learned that
Mac OS X uses bundles to wrap a collection of files into self-contained directories that appear as files in Finder and other programs.
Bundles store external resources, including those intended for specific localizations.
The system provides standard locations and file formats for storing preference files, and tools for viewing and editing them.
In the next chapter, you learn about the C programming language. C is commonly used in writing Carbon programs, and it also forms the base of the Objective-C programming language used by Cocoa. Before proceeding, however, try the exercises that follow to test your understanding of the material covered in this chapter. You can find the solutions to these exercises in the Appendix A.
