OSSubprocess 64-bit macOS Mojave

15 January 2019

OSSubprocess works on macOS Mojave with 64-bit Pharo.

Load it the usual way:

Metacello new
  baseline: 'OSSubprocess';
  repository: 'github://pharo-contributions/OSSubprocess:master/repository';
  load. 

Run the tests. If Pharo was started like how applications are usually started on the Mac, by double-clicking the Pharo.app icon, Test Runner will report 40+ test errors.

Run Pharo the Unix way on the command line: ~/MyApps/Pharo.app/Contents/MacOS/Pharo mypharo7.image. Now all 114 tests pass. All 7 stress tests pass too. Tested with Pharo 7.0 pre-release image.

OSX NativeBoost FFI Oddity

3 January 2014

On my computer running OSX, now Mavericks, was Mountain Lion, NativeBoost crashes the Pharo.app process when interfacing with a universal 32/64 bit dylib, such as the system-bundled libsqlite3.dylib.

With a self-built 32 bit-only libsqlite3.dylib, NativeBoost works.
