I no longer have a Linux machine and am now on Macs exclusively. Though I do have a Parallels environment running Windows 8, I don't know that I have the time nor the desire to make the script run on Windows.

I actually haven't used the script in several years, so I don't even have it running on my Mac, though I do still have all Mickazoids code and my mods to it.

At some point I ended up building a Javascript sector generator that output maps via Canvas, and hoped to get the PDFs generated through JS instead so it would be accessible through a browser, but a new job then a new baby changed all that.

Maybe at some point I'll revisit, but no immediate plans. My current state in life keeps me with very little free time these days

Default Sorry to be a necromancer....

I finally have a stock Mac.

It is running High Serra.

There have been a few headaches, but the latest is gensec3 and Mapsub, and probably other executables are not comparable. Gensec errors "Bad cpu type" so I am certain it needs recompiled, as well as other the other apps in C.

Very rusty using make and compiling, especially on a Mac, and GCC is apparently not comparable with High Serra. Hopefully someone has successfully recompiled these.

Also the perl scripts are not being found, but I can hopefully track that on on my own.

Hope somebody remembers all of this.

And know, too much life has happened for me to have ever gotten a solid enough grounding to port anything to a PC, and as I said, my coding skills have really degraded over the last few years.

Thanks for the memories, and possible resurrection...

First, you need to get XCode from Apple -- this will give you the base line development tools to build things (in theory, you can just download the command line tools, you don't need all of XCode).

Then, you can get Homebrew or MacPorts or one of the other packaging systems and use that to install more familiar unix based packages and projects (such as, notably, GCC).

I'm not familiar with gensec3 or Mapsub. You may very well have executables from back when the Mac was a Power PC.

Note, you do not need GCC per se to build things (unless they rely on GCC extensions). But the Mac does not use GCC itself, it uses clang and LLVM for its C compiler suite.
