    Mac How to customize Xcode support of compilers?

    I have a rather non-standard set up to build for PowerPC: 10.6 PPC (10A190) with Xcode 3.2 and 10.6.8 with Xcode 3.2, Xcode 3.2.6 and Xcode 4.2. There are two problems: 1.

    For a lot of us, many POSIX-related utilities, tools, and libraries are handled routinely by Macports, so I haven’t seen this kind of question come up on the PPC forum. This question involves building from source code without using a ports handler like macports or homebrew. How come? Because...

    Mac Compiling Programs For macOS Unix from Linux

    First off, hello everyone. :) I'm too poor to own a Mac, but I'm still interested in porting cool Programs for all of you Macheads to enjoy (I mean that in a positive way). :) As my Profile states, I Program in many Languages, but I'm just starting on Swift. Is Swift the only way to...
