Here is something that I haven’t found on the web: an example of how to create a NSWindow programatically from Cocoa. After a little bit of reading, and some head scratching, this is what I got:

NSWindow *window = [[NSWindow alloc] initWithContentRect:windowRect 
styleMask:( NSResizableWindowMask | NSClosableWindowMask | NSTitledWindowMask) 
backing:NSBackingStoreBuffered defer:NO];
[window makeKeyAndOrderFront:nil];
