back in the old days Apple provided a development environment called "Macintosh Programmer's Workshop" (MPW) which was used to create most of the software until the independent MetroWerks CodeWarrior IDE (favored by Bungie themselves) showed up. the main 'interface' in MPW was a unix-like console in which compiler warnings and errors showed up. i don't remember if CodeWarrior had something like this (it has been about 15 years since i last used it!). anyway: Bungie programmers would have seen a lot of this type of warnings while coding Marathon, even if it was on a CodeWarrior compiler results window :)
