I would be willing to pay about $$ for the help.
This link takes you to the place where they say you can download the source code.
That would be great! Thanks.robbieduncan said:It seems to be written in Ruby (which is a bit non-standard on the Mac to say the least). On the upside Ruby is a scripting language (a bit like Perl) so just downloading Ruby for OSX and the source should be pretty much all there is to it. Whilst it will probably compile the code it will be done at runtime so you don't need anyone to compile it for you. If I have time later (i.e. tomorrow) I'll have a look at this and post some step-by-step instructions.
Can't do anything wrong with trying. If he's prepared to put the source online of his application, he wouldn't mind sharing the source for digest files which are CRC32, MD5 and SHA1 checksum algorithms. He surely didn't write that himself, as they are very common.MrVegas said:I doubt if I can get ahold of the programmer for the source of the .so files.
Okay, I know this is a little late coming I have been interested for some time with the idea of porting AQScript to the Mac and Linux. I have begun workj on a port, the first step of which was stripping out any code that was pulled from the ruby standard lib (which is distributed with ruby itself) and identifying any 3rd-party code that was integrated ... The CRC32 extension is one such piece of code - it was not written as part of AQScript itself (which I suppose is why the c source was not included) - and I have sent the original CRC32 author an email requesting the source.Can't do anything wrong with trying.
