    2929  '''NOTE:''' Most Objective-C application projects use a main nibfile called "!MainMenu.nib", and if you use XCode to create a new application project, it creates a nibfile with that name. Apple's !CurrencyConverter tutorial assumes that the name of the main nibfile is "!MainMenu.nib".
     30
     31  So, why do we tell you to use a different name? OpenMCL has a main nibfile built into it, whose name is "!MainMenu.nib". Normally you don't see it, and don't even need to know that it exists. But the OpenMCL application-building tools create a new application by copying resources from the OpenMCL application, so that your new application has available to it all the built-in OpenMCL tools. We ask you to name your nibfile "!CurrencyConverter.nib" so that it can coexist with the OpenMCL main nibfile without causing any problems.
     32
     33  This difference between a Lisp project and an Objective-C project might be a little confusing at first. Just try to keep in mind that whenever Apple's tutorial refers to the "!MainMenu.nib" file, it means the file we have just created and named "!CurrencyConverter.nib". In an OpenMCL project, "!MainMenu.nib" is the name of the main Lisp nibfile, not your application's main nibfile.
