[gopher] Re: UMN Gopher on Mac OSX
If anyone has the resources (I don't at the moment) I would also be
interested in knowing whether gopher 3.0.2 compiles on OS X without
changes if the drive format is UFS.
I read some Apple knowledge base articles about UFS, and while they
don't address the performance problems I mentioned earlier today,
they *did* say that while they recommend I use HFS+ for "the
Macintosh experience", if I was planning on doing any Unix
development, that I should probably opt to format my drive as UFS.
Interesting. This isn't an option with my home setup at this time,
but when I get my computer upgraded here at work (and you can bet
I'll be using OS X when that happens), perhaps I'll explore that...
thanks again to those who have contributed to this porting work.
