    I believe the language of choice (i.e., the one most prevalent) for Macintosh GUI development is Objective C, which is a different animal altogether.

    Note that you really aren't limited to only these languages. PCs (and Macs) are open beasts, so you can really use whatever language you want, especially if you use a GUI framework (highly recommended). Any API calls will be Objective C, but if you avoid those...
    C and Obj-C are difficult to learn, I dare say. C++ is not as difficult, but is vast. Very vast. It's a beast in size, and so can be difficult to learn everything. Then there is other languages such as Java.

    Anyway, the point is, take a look at some of these languages and see if they fit you. You might even try them out a little for yourself. Some are hard, some are easy. And never is there one language that is suited for everything or suitable for everyone. It's a journey to find the right one. Good luck.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
