Programming a 68K on a 68K?

Hello everyone,
I want to do some vintage programming on a vintage Mac. I have a Color Classic and an SE/30. Any ideas what programming software will run on these that might still be downloadable? I would like it to be able to do graphical user interface design. I am open to any programming language, but something low level would be best as I want to have direct access to the ports.

Thanks in advance,

Todd

Tried the barracks?

I do not know the best answer for your question and you may get some good ones here, but I would be remiss not to point you towards http://www.68kmla.net/. It is to 68k what Apple Fritter is to everything after 68k, the best place on the web to go for answers on your Mac.
