Sorry for not being clear on the python stuff. I should have mentioned how bash shell scripts work. If you are familiar to windows, the script I gave as an example is kind of like a dos batch script (The scripts ending in .bat) but a lot more useful. The ilrunw would not depend on python in anyway. I just wanted to show you how another project solved your same problem.

Thanks to everybody for replying to this

I am very new to the Mac and Unix so sorry for my ignorance but you
basically have to recompile ilrun to create a bundle?

No, you simply have to wrap a copy of ilrun in a MacOS bundle. that way the OS thinks its just a normal application.

Argg! I don't know Python either. Here's what I think is happening. I
just googled and looked at something else for TkWindows or something...

exec /Applications/ $@

Assuming I was running a python script to get my ilrun to work. (I need
to use python right?) (Or could I write a native stub C++ program on the
Mac to do all this?)

This is a shell script. that "#!/bin/sh" at the top describes what interpreter to use. All scripts in Unix land use this script format. I was using pythonw as an example of another project's solution to your mac window problems. And yes, you could use a C program or anything else to execute the bundle from the command line. You could even run the bundle directly from a command-line like this, "open test.exe" on the mac.

Anyway assuming a Python script runs this stuff and all my programs are
in the right paths...

Exec /Applications/ $@

I assume the $@ is the command line ?

No, the "$@" passes any command line arguments along. This is a shell script, and that is the cmd line argument variable that most (if not all) /bin/sh shells use. Otherwise, yes, thats how you would do it.

So if my Python script was called ilrunw and my harness C# exe is called
testqt.exe ...

Then-> ilrunw testqt.exe

Would do it?

That is correct. Or, you could easily make a file association on the mac so you could double-click your testqt.exe if you so choose.


Hope that helps!
