I tried to download and install oorexx 3.1.2 on my iMac OSX Lion machine and although the install appears to finish without any errors, I can't find any files or folders that look like oorexx.

Please help!

    So have you looked in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin for a program named rexx?

    I have looked in /bin and there is no rexx or anything else that looks like oorexx.

    only the system has programs in /bin. You need to look in either /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin. (most likely the first)

    I looked in use/bin too and no rexx there is no use/local/bin.

    Ok, check you home directory. I just looked at the installer, and it looks like it might install in ~/bin etc. ($HOME/bin).

    Ok Sorry for the run around. The install says that the default install location is /opt/ooRexx.

    You should be able to add the following to your profile.

    PATH=/opt/ooRexx/bin:$PATH

    DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/ooRexx/lib/ooRexx:$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH

    Thanks! Found it at last! Now where is this PROFILE file?

    The file is .profile, and it should be located in your home directory.

    ~/.profile
    or
    $HOME/.profile

    Installation was successful. No bugs to correct.
