    Question Compiling to a binary?
    I have a question that I have googled before but I still can not find a solid answer.
    Say I downloaded a source code package for a program. It says that the following cod can be compiled and run on Linux and OS X. The software comes with instructions to first run the command "configure" and then the command "make".
    Ok, so, I get to the right directory, run the configure command. That works fine, or at least I think so. Then I run the command "make" but that returns an error that the following command is not valid.
    What do I do? How do I compile the source code into a binary that I can dump into my applications folder?

    Thank you beforehand

    Have you installed Apple's development tools? They come with your system, but you can download the latest one from Apple if you create a free developer user account.
