    I'm new to Mac Forums so please forgive me if this is posted in the wrong area. I've been following this thread:

    . At this point I'm stuck due to my lack of Unix skills and familiarity with macs. If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it.

    I was able to build a Unix executable file called ccextractor. When I open this file it shows me the documentation for the program and ends with the following:

    Error: (This help screen was shown because there were no input files).

    The beginning of the documentation shows the following syntax:

    ccextractor [options] inputfile1 [inputfile2...] [-o outputfilename] [-o1 outputfilename1] [-o2 outputfilename2]

    My question is where do I enter this syntax? I try typing it into terminal and get:

    ccextractor: command not found

    PLEASE HELP!!
