of course, my first question about the regression tests is...
Will it work on the Mac?
Of course. Once it's ported. Good luck (-:
In fact, as discussed at the last tuesday meeting, the mechanism for
starting up the backend as a separate process and shutting it down is
inherently operating system dependent. (Whether done in C++ or csh)
It turned out to be a very small amount of code, but took a long time
to figure out. Somehow I don't that process control under MacOS is
going to easier to figure out than unix. So seriously, good luck.
