It ain't much, but it's still pretty cool and interesting.

"With the permission of Adobe Systems, the Computer History Museum has made available the source code for Photoshop version 1.0.1, comprising about 128,000 lines code within 179 files, most of which is in Pascal, the remainder in 68000 assembly language. This the kind of code I aspire to write. The Computer History Museum has earlier made available the source code to MacPaint."

Note: At the time of writeing, the source code site is down.


Here is some screenshots of PS 1: http://creativebits....on_of_photoshop

Why are they comparing to "Todays CS2 (9.0)"
Photoshop is up to CS6 last I checked, maybe even CS7 now?

I'm not. :) The screenshots is just a random article I found to give you a picture of what was released. If you look on the Slashdot article, it says "Posted on Thursday February 14, @ 08:47AM".

Edit: No probs! lol. :D

What about the precursor to Photoshop? I had that on my Mac Plus.

Edit: I think it was called SuperDraw or something.

Interesting that it's mostly Pascal and assembly. People say Photoshop is written entirely in C++, but this goes to show that at least it hasn't always been that way; if anything, there's probably still some Pascal and a lot of hand-written assembly in there.
