Mac OS X

The preferred installation is from the binary distribution. If you have to compile the source code, it gets more complicated (see Compiling Bsoft).


Download and install in the default location from a disk image

Download:

The following was compiled under Mac OS X 10.13.6 (High Sierra):

Bsoft2.dmg

Install in the default location:

Double-click on the dmg file - this will mount the disk image.

Double-click on the pkg file - this will launch the Mac installer.

Follow the installation instructions from the installer. The command line programs will install in /usr/local/bsoft, while Bshow and Brun will install in /Applications


Download and install in a different place

Download:

The following was compiled under Mac OS X 10.13.6 (High Sierra):

bsoft2_0_7_OSX_10_13.tgz

Install in a user-defined location:

Change to the installation directory:

		cd /usr/local
	

Unpack the distribution:

		tar xzvf bsoft2_0_7_OSX_10_13.tgz
	

Set up the environment

Launch a terminal and set up the environment:
