It was recently brought to my attention by Judy Klein that the commandline version of CMask sometimes crashes depending on the commandline arguments that are provided. I tracked down the problem to a very small buffer size for the input and output filenames/pathnames. So if you are experiencing a "Segmentation fault" with CMask, it may be because you are specifying paths on the commandline that are longer than 32 characters.

I have posted my notes from the first time that I compiled Csound 5.09 on Mac OS X "Leopard". Normally, most users should install one of the pre-built binary packages from Sourceforge. But there are some good reasons for building Csound yourself, and in particular on Leopard at the current time (Nov. 2008) because the pre-built binaries are built on 10.4 "Tiger" (which mostly work but see below).
I am currently working on a small update to the MacOS X/9 version of CMask. So far, I think that I have fixed almost all of the shortcomings in the GUI from the previous release. The "Generate Score..." command should hopefully now allow you to open any file on MacOS X 10.4. And the other menu commands are all working with the exception of "Page Setup".
OK. I now have the privileges to post news items on Csounds.com, so maybe I won't need to use this blog for software release announcements. But I may still announce pre-release versions of CsoundFront or other tools and occasionally provide details about what I am working on. I am even considering posting some of my personal Csound explorations now.
I am loving the new cSounds.com! And this new blogging feature for Csounders is amazing -- I expect many useful things to come out of it.
