Just trying to get the word out. a group of us have been working on getting gnat to work with os x. Alan and Andrew Reynolds made big progress last week. the compiler bootstraps and builds tools and libs. it has some problems that we have been working hard on. biggest is that exceptions don't work. they compile fine, but if one is raise the program segfaults. but some people like to live on the edge and so we have put up a web page thanks to david bottom and adapower at <www.adapower.net/macos> that walk you though bootstrapping the compiler starting from a bare gnat1 and gnatbind on the web page and the FSF sources (page tells how to get them). in addition it tells how to join our mac os discussion list where we make announcements and take bug report etc. So if you like living on the edge check it out and pass the info along to any mac os folks who you think might be interested ps. i will try to put a tar ball of the current state of the compiler on the web page tomorrow or the next day for those of you who want to play but don't want to bootstrap your own compiler.
