Metrowerks is very easy to use, and it's cheap.  Apple MPW/C seems to me
more easily interfaced with Fortran tools from various vendors.   If you
were to integrate a lot of existing Fortran code into you application,
that would be the only reason I'd at least take a look at MPW.

I don't know about the legality of the following suggestion, but...
there must be a lot of people (like me) with several old versions of
Apple MPW and MetroWerks Code Warrior sitting around.  How about getting
hold (by a license transfer or whatever) of an obsolete copy?  It should
do fine for your student project.
