it might seem strange, but I really enjoy programming in Fortran, but
since it is just a hobby, I don't see the need to spend upwards of
$600 on a compiler. Therefore, I have been very happy with Damiens
plugin, but lately I have trouble linking. The error is:
error: can't exec '/Developer/Library/Xcode/Plug-ins/
CoreBuildTasks.xcplugin/Contents/Resources/gcc' (No such file or
This file is indeed not there, and putting a symlink to the "real" gcc
there just gives me a different error message that I am not allowed to
execute the file. Allright, so I downloaded the source to the plugin,
hoping it would link to the correct gcc when I compile it on my system
(after all, the strange gcc location is only requested when I compile
Fortran files). No luck!
Now I have looked through all the files, but could not see how this
location (CoreBuildTasks.xcplugin/Contents/Resources/gcc) comes to be
requested. I also re-installed Xcode and did lots of other stuff until
I decided to ask for help. The Readme in the plugin source mentions a
newer version 1.0b3 (Oct 2008) : update for Mac OS X 10.5.5. I am
running 10.5.8, so I guess this might be the change that get me
running the Fortran compiler again.
Unfortunately, the Readme is the only location where a version 1.0b3
is mentioned, the source just builds versions 1.0b1 and 1.0b2
My system: MBP with CoreDuo, OS X 10.5.8, Xcode 3.1.3.
Thank you in advance for any helpful advice!
