The Newton Application Architecture

NewtonScript is an object-oriented programming language developed by Walter Smith for Apple for the Newton OS running on their MessagePad & eMate hardware. It borrows concepts from the Smalltalk, LISP, and Self programming languages with special consideration for a low memory footprint (esp. differential inheritance). In 2003 a NewtonScript interpreter, NEWT/0 was developed by Makoto Nukui allowing for its use on other platforms.

Here you’ll find information about the language, available development tools for various platforms, libraries with NewtonScript interfaces, and programming reference materials.

Here are some articles and papers about Newton OS written by various members of the Newton team:
