the ADMB is a good solution for them doesn't go very far when they
can't even install it so that it works. I think that on snow leopard
we should but it in the users home directory say /Users/idiot
leave its name the same but make a symbolic link to /Users/idiot/admb
append the following two commands
make sure the file permissions are correct and we can use admb from
any terminal. rationalize all the programs in admb/bin
make sure it knows whether to compile for 32 or 64 bit
put in a little apple specific README file That would be a start.
