    Are there any EPROM programmers available that work on the Mac platform? I want something that can burn 2716, 2732, 2764 and 27128 EPROMs but all the programmers I've come across run only in Windows, and I'm not sure how well they'd work under emulation/virtual emulation so native OSX support would be preferred.

    Looks like it works with the EPROMs I mentioned according to this list of supported devices and US$ 36 sounds like a good deal. I suppose it's good enough for the occasional EPROM burning even though several people in the discussion thread argued that the more well known brand names in programmers are both more reliable and better supported.

    As for the software, it would be nice to try it out before getting the programmer hardware. The Github page makes it look very intimidating and complex for us non-coding types. As far as I see there's not even an OSX binary to download but all sources which need to be compiled first. Has anyone pre-compiled an OSX version of the software which they'd be willing to share?
