Of course, but there are legitimate, Apple sanctioned Tiger  
developers, myself included, and it is public knowledge that Tiger  
exists, people have it, and that folks are developing for it. I  
merely am probing to see if anyone has OpenMCL working under it and  
would like to correspond. (privately is fine, and I respect your  
position, esp seeing as Apple has been a little trigger happy lately)

Indeed and of course you are correct. They were left over from a  
previous effort. Mea culpa!

Indeed! As I should have done.

worked flawlessly!
and I thank you!

Now- as for Hemlock / the IDE, compiles fine, but subsequent loading  
of 'cocoa':

? (require "COCOA")
Unhandled exception 11 at 0x90000c18, context->regs at #xbfffe718
Read operation to unmapped address 0x0000000c
In foreign code at address 0x90000c18

which looks a little nastier. is this possibly related to the foreign- 
function database? I haven't had the time/guts to play with ffigen  
yet (which I am presuming generates the catalogs?)
