Hi Matthew,

Thanks for the info. I'm running v371, and the stand-alone executable which
I generated on 10.4 didn't run on 10.5. I haven't seen the error myself, as
my students reported it, but they said that the error was "You can't open
the application because it is not supported on this architecture."

If the MacOS binary distribution works fine on 10.5, I'll just try to find a
Leopard machine, and build a Leopard version for my students.

Thanks for your help.
