Are you running from the shell (Terminal)? If so type:
open /Applications/TextEdit.app .bash_common
Hey, Egan, I am no Unix/Linux guru, but I am proud to share that I found an error in this. The command should be
open -a /Applications/TextEdit.app .bash_common
or, even more simply,
open -e .bash_common
In the Mac OS X implementation, the -e switch is simply a shortcut for "-a /Applications/TextEdit.app".
For noobs like me who are curious, I created my single line .bash_profile file from the command line with
echo "export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/wp34s" >> .bash_profile
then had to run
chmod 777 .bash_profile
to ensure the script was executed when a fresh Terminal window started up in the bash shell.
(Of course, other users may elect to keep the wp34s perl scripts elsewhere--I just happen to choose /Users/[myusername]/wp34s.)
Since, I have been very happily assembling and disassembling wp34s library files without having to leave the OS X environment.
Unfortunately, I cannot get the new Mac flashing tool to work, even though I prep the calc exactly as I do with MySamba. I know that my Mac detects my FTDI converter just fine since I have successfully moved material back and forth between the calc and Mac emulator over my USB-serial connection. Will seek out Pascal's direction. Fortunately, MySamba on Win XP in Fusion still works like a charm.
