Kevin -

This would be fantastic to have imho. When using tcc on Mac, I've just used it to run code immediately after compiling, but being able to compile executable binaries on Mac with tcc would be great! Post back when you hit blocking issues in case somebody here has insights.

I’ll see if I could do that. I am a pretty young C developer actually, but I want to at least give it a try. :)

Hey there.

Another issue I’d like to report is, that TCC seems to be unable to
link on OS X. I belive its because Mac doesnt quite use ELF, as far as
I know. At least, that is what somebody said about objcopy.

Mac OS X uses an object file format called "mach-o" which is largely
unique to it.  Someone would have to teach tcc how to generate and
link this object file format.
