Another development from over the past few days is my first application that interacts with the Mac OS X Address Book. It is available here. Basically, all it does is tell you how many people are in your Mac OS X address book and lists their names. It currently can only handle ASCII values (just so that it can be easily printed to the terminal), and it's an entirely terminal-based application, but it is a first step for interacting with the Address Book. And, perhaps more importantly, it is a first step using the Address Book Carbon API (Carbon is what OOo uses) rather than the Cocoa API. Meaning: it should be possible to integrate the Address Book using Carbon and C (both supported by OOo) rather than Cocoa and Objective-C (which are not). Enjoy!
