I've been able to create a (very) simple MacRuby app, but I'm
stalled on some Cocoa questions. Basically, I'm looking for a
Cocoa object (or some combination of objects) to implement a
variation on a Terminal, as follows:
I want two columns of text, controlled by a common vertical
The right-hand column should act like a Terminal window. That
is, new text (whether entered, pasted, or generated by running
an external command) should show up at the "end" of the screen.
Text can be copied from any region of this column.
The left-hand column will contain sequence numbers for entries
in the right-hand column. These will be generated by my code
(when it thinks it has received a user "command") and won't be
copiable or editable.
I could use a Table View (with non-editable columns) to display
the text, but I'm not sure how to get at the keyboard (or paste)
input). What approaches/objects should I be looking at?
