If anybody downloaded this file while I had it up there, please delete it straight away!  Do not extract it!
I very stupidly included a system dylib in the tar.  My system is Panther 10.3.4, so extracting it would probably be ok if you have the same system version, but it will probably cause problems on any other system.  That said, I take no responsibility if you tried this.
I have removed the file.  I'll try again without the system dylibs.  (with only the dylibs for readanysf dependencies that you would otherwise have to download and compile if you built readanysf from scratch).
If I have another go I'll give it a thorough test before I post it.

Subject: test tar package with readanysf~ dependencies for OSX


I've made a tar file with all of the dylib dependencies for readanysf~.dylib

It is online here:

This also inludes all the symlinks that point to the dylibs that readanysf~ depends on.  It doesn't include any of the .a static libraries though.

I'm sure the way I made this is not really the right way to do it.

But I am very curious as to whether the tar actually provides everything necessary for someone to use readanysf~ without downloading, compiling and installing all the dependencies.

If anyone would like to try out this tar file, I'd be very interested to hear your results.  

Alternatively, if anyone can tell me the proper way of packaging up a dylib with many dylib dependencies, I'd really love to know how.

Extract the tar by changing to root directory
cd /
and then:
sudo tar -xf pdtest.tar


In case you're interested, here is the command line I used to create the tar file:

tar -cf readanysf-depends.tar /usr/local/lib/pd/extra/readanysf~.pd_darwin /usr/local/bin/readanysf~.pd_darwin /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib /usr/libexec/gdb/symfiles/libSystem.B.dylib.syms /usr/local/lib/libflext.dylib /usr/local/lib/libogg.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/libvorbis.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/libvorbisfile.3.dylib /usr/local/lib/libmad.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/libFLAC.4.dylib /usr/lib/libSystem.dylib /usr/local/lib/libogg.dylib /usr/local/lib/libvorbis.dylib /usr/local/lib/libvorbisfile.dylib /usr/local/lib/libmad.0.2.1.dylib /usr/local/lib/libmad.dylib /usr/local/lib/libFLAC.dylib /usr/local/lib/libFLAC.4.1.2.dylib /usr/local/lib/libvorbisfile.3.1.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/libvorbis.0.3.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/libogg.0.5.0.dylib
