good to go for building TeXworks yourself - if you want. I've uploaded a
guide derived from the original readme file at
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://code.google.com/p/texworks/wiki/BuildingOnMacOSXHomebrew">http://code.google.com/p/texworks/wiki/BuildingOnMacOSXHomebrew</a>. AFAIK,
however, it was not tested on a clean (meaning: no development files
installed) system, yet. So, if you're willing to try, please take a look
at it, and report anything (be at a successful compilation, a problem, a
suggestion, or whatever else) you experience here so we can improve this
guide and others can follow in your footsteps in the future.
After a few false starts to strip out some material from earlier
attempts, I seem to have got this working. The only notes I'd add are
that (1) Xcode 3 is on the second DVD that came with my Mac, so I
avoided downloading it. (Install the 'Developer Tools' or something like
that.) (2) Building Qt tool over 2 hours even after it was downloaded,
and the download was also pretty long. So pick a time when you can leave
that particular step running.
Thanks for testing and providing feedback!<br>
Re. 1): If you (or someone else) could check the correct term
(without the "or something like that" ;)) I'll add it to the guide.
BTW: Is having a second DVD with developer tools common, or is this
specific to your version/configuration (sorry, I've lived in the
Windows world for quite a while, where most operating systems come
in a wide variety of variants ranging from "basic" to "ultimate"
with different features and support).<br>
Re. 2): Right now it says "<i>Warning: Some of these will take a
long time to finish. Especially Qt is quite large (several 100s of
MB), so make sure you have a good internet connection and (up to)
a couple of hours. The good thing is that each installation should
run without requiring any input from you." </i>just below the
"brew install" commands. If this is unclear (or too easy to
overlook), I happily accept improvements.<br>
