Jason (and other Mac users),
I am very interested in helping folks get IDLE and my graphics package
running on the Mac with minimal hassles. I have seen numerous references
to the native Tcl/Tk and Python build under Aqua (rather than using
XDarwin), but I have not found either:
1) A binary package made available by someone who has done this to make
it easy for others to follow that route
2) Step-by-Step instructions for getting the build done right.
I have built Python many times on Linux systems, but I have no Mac
experience. I do not even really know where to start. Do have pointers
to some resources that would allow less Mac-proficient folks to get this
done with a minimum of muss and fuss?
By the way, I have also seen some references indicating that the Tk-Aqua
port may not yet be ready for primetime. Have you used your setup enough
to know how stable it is?
