    Creating an Installer with PackageManager
    I'm trying to create an installer with the OSX Package Manger (installed from the dev tools). It needs to place files in the current user's /HOME directory, as well as the Applications folder. Do I just create a directory structure similar to the install? I've read the docs that came with the tool and I can't quite get the files in the right place. Has anyone had any experience with this tool? Any information would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    :confused:

    Let me clarify what I am trying to do. I need to create an installer for a program that I have. I am using the package maker that comes with OSX. I am able to get the files into the correct locations. But there are 2 files that are required to be installed into the current userès HOME/library folder.

    Has anyone here had any experience with this application. I just need some info on getting the files into that folder specifically. Thank you very much!
