Open the Finder

Get to the Pd application.

Right-click (or Control-click) and select "show package contents". This is 
because apps are not real "regular files", they are disguised folders.

dig a bit. (there are too many folder levels in there)

one of the files inside is actually a true OSX executable, which is the 
one OSX loads when you click on the Pd application. I think it's in a 
folder labeled "MACOSX". Unlike when opening the app, each time you 
activate this file it opens Pd again. You can have as many as you want 
this way, just like on Linux.

You can also achieve the same effect by opening a Terminal. Nothing 
special here: Pd.app will look like an ordinary folder. This will be easy 
if you already know how to use the Terminal in OSX or Linux.
