I have an OpenGL application from linux that I'm moving to OS-X (now uses carbon for windowing). It all works fine, except I have two questions, and google hasn't been helping me. :/

1. When I run the application from the GUI, with no terminal open, it opens a terminal just to run the application. This is pretty annoying, how can I have it not open any terminal at all to run it?

2. When I run the application, it opens up behind all the other currently opened windows. Why on earch is it doing this?

Thanks for any help

1. I presume you're using CodeWarrior and this is a setting you can remove, don't remember if it's in the project's settings or the IDE preferences.

Nope, using commands like CreateNewWindow, and then agl stuff to set up the context.

Any ideas?

There should be a compiler switch to not open the terminal. Check the GCC docs.
