The source code consists of about 128,000 lines and is mostly undocumented. Version 1.0 of the software was created by one sole engineer, Thomas Knoll. Version 2 had just two engineers. Around 75 percent of the code is written in Pascal and about 15 percent is in 68000 assembler language.

 

The code is free for non-commercial use and can be downloaded from the Computer History Museum. Nearly everything is included, save for the MacApp applications library that was licensed from Apple.
