[ADMB Users] Perhaps I can be of help?

Since I do use a Mac and have nearly no knowledge of *nix systems, I'll try to document what I encounter as well as try to get feedback from other Mac users I talk to.

I didn't mean to complain. I just wanted to get the information out there since I didn't figure out what was going on until I talked to a Linux user. I had bypassed the issue by compiling from source, but was considering telling the list that the precompiled download was broken.

I agree with Mollie that perhaps better documentation on how admb       integrates with unix and MacOSX may be appropriate.  I can easily understand how people who use MacOSX as a modern commercially supported Unix wouldn't find installing admb into /usr/local odd or suprising. However, many MacOSX users don't view MacOSX as unix. I would happily help write the documentation; however I am just a lowly Linux user and I don't know what directories are hidden in MacOSX. Nor do I know the installation procedure for MacOSX; I built admb from source on a Mac once but that doesn't count.  I certainly appreciate Mollie's frustration and don't think it should be too hard to improve the MacOSX documentation. Let me know if I can be any help.
