What I meant was, that it is a shell script, an icon,
and a statically linked binary all wrapped up in the
standard OS X package format.  There are also some
extra things included - GPL; a quickly, badly written
readme, and the POV Ray source for my icon.

Perhaps, if we can get other people to test my shell
script, you could add the ability to make the OS X
Application Bundle.

As far as the format, .dmg is what Mac users will
expect.   They mount it, read the license and readme,
then copy the application to wherever they want to put
it.  I created the .tar.gz so that non Mac people
could see what I had done.

I'll see if I can update and be there.  If it works I
can send you the binary.  Would you prefer the
.tar.gz, .dmg, or both?

Well, I'll see if I can help with that too.

Thank you for the game!

I'm attaching the icon I made.  I can't attach the
shell script becuase IE is being a dork, and yahoo!
mail's javascript doesn't work with Apple's browser.

#!/usr/bin/perl -l
print pack 'N6', @_[5,0,3,1,4,2];
