How about a Mac OSX version of boardmod? it
should be relatively easy to recompile the linux
version for Mac OSX, I would think anyway.

Many Thanks

    I'd love to but I don't know of any way to compile Kylix
    applications on mac... I've looked through the Kylix
    newsgroups and couldn't find any way todo this.

    Oh, I noticed on the main page of this project that it is for X11 applications aswell. not too long ago Apple announced X11 for mac. Not sure if it will help you in making an OSX version of boardmod, but I thought the info wouldn't go amiss. heres the x11 info on the Apple site

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/x11/

    cheers (Oh, I posted the first suggestion, I since signed up at sourceforge.)

    I read something about X11 under OSX recently. The problem
    is that apply uses a different processor (PPC) which means
    that BoardMod would have to be recompiled for OSX. But
    Kylix, the compiler program, does only run on intel x86.
    That's the disadvantage of using Delphi instead of C or C++
    which both have compilers for PPC.

    Ahhh, right, ok, I think I understand now. The code isn't
    necessarily incompatible, but requires a re-compile to
    run on PPC. so if sometime in the future a version of
    kylix became available for PPC, you could simply
    re-compile, and it would work? am I correct in thinking
    this?

    Cheers for looking into it anyways :)
