When reading up about Mac OS X Kerberos Extras while trying to get Kerberos working, I came across the phrase 'CFM-based application'. What does this mean?

Code Fragment Manager (CFM) based applications are, to the best of my knowledge, Carbon applications for OSX that were cross-compatible between OSX and Classic (9).

Found some more info on this page under Executable Formats.

Carbon...Framework.....Munging? What does CFM stand for? – fredley Oct 18 '11 at 16:02
Code Fragment Manager? That's a doozy. – Nic Oct 18 '11 at 16:04

The only time I have come across CFM is in regards to the Cold Fusion rapid application development system. The Wikipedia article gives a decent overview of the platform.
