interesting failure on mac

for "kicks and giggles" I tried the compiler script out on mac.
...

Please enter the number of cores/threads your CPU has. (Make sure the number you enter is correct, trying to use more cores/threads than your CPU has can cause your system to crash).: 2

I never had a look to the script but based on my experience, if the problem is happening at the beginning of the execution of the script it could be due to a Carriage Return / Line Feed compatibility.

If I remember well CR LF is used like that :
  • - Windows : CR + LF
  • - UNIX : LF
  • - Mac : CR
Not sure 'bout what i'm saying... could be pure bullshit. :mrgreen:
I'll give it a try before next week if you want. Having a Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard running on my laptop. ;)
