digitalmars.D.announce - GDC install binary (OSX)

As gdcmac.sourceforge.net links to dgcc.sourceforge.net for the 
Universal binary for Tiger I guess this is the "recomended" 
distribution, and that the user friendly packages are gone :(.

So I downloaded and get a nice folder that seems like it should be 
merged into /usr, at least that is where my current install resides, and 
all files I have checked so far matches.

But how do I actually copt the files to the right locations. Just copy 
would remove any files in existing files, as it do not "merge" folder 
structures. What should I do?

A README in the distrubution would be nice, and Anders; please continue 
providing the install packages. It is a great way to also install the 
Xcode support.

It's not gone forever, it was just "gone fishing" :-) Seriously, I'm right in the middle of the process of upgrading from Panther to Tiger which is why there the packages from Mac OS X 10.3 and none for Mac OS X 10.4. I'm sure you've read all about the problems with Tiger elsewhere, so I won't bore everyone with the details here. But about my only reason for upgrading is the Intel macs... Anyway, there will be a four-way Universal build for 10.4 that allows you to build binaries both to and from X86/PPC. (with the 32/64-bit, Apple is now up to Quad binaries even!)

I will make a temporary release of the separate PPC/X86 builds, while I tweak the last remaining bugs of the "universal" one... I think the Xcode support will go separate, just to get it out. This build will be done with the Xcode 2.3, don't trust 2.4 yet. --anders

the directories (Guess I UIs too much). Second problem was the tool chain complaining about some libs being out of date (A darwin specific complaint google told me), easily fixed with ranlib. But troublesome enough for me to still want "real" install packages :). // Fredrik Olsson

GDC 0.19 for Tiger (PPC) was posted to the gdcmac.sourceforge.net site. --anders
