Installing xconv on Mac

Reported by: ata27 Owned by: jeff

I've spent a while looking on the internet and on Jeff's web pages, but I just wondered if there is anything new to be said about installing/running xconv on a Mac. I am running OS X 10.8.5 and I'm having trouble getting the precompiled builds to run (i.e. I can't get them to run).

I use xconv on our Linux cluster all the time and I'd like to run it on my laptop too!

Hi Alex

The only Mac versions I have built are very old now and were compiled on a power-pc based Mac, the latest Intel OS-X no longer runs these executables. A while ago I did start to look at building the latest version of Xconv on an Intel Mac but other stuff came up so it got left behind. If I get some time I will try and finish this off, I don't think it will be too much work. Recently I did build a Intel Mac version of Xancil if you are interested in that.
