cranker and 64bit binary

category: general [glöplog]
Im a big fan and user of the `cranker' packer/depacker for 68000 cpu. However, due to recent OSX upgrade only supporting/running 64bit applications, the result of compiling cranker from source results in a binary that is not usable to me natively.

Does anyone know how to get in touch with bifat/TEK?

After "kkrunchy", "crinkler", "shrinkler", "squishy", and now "cranker", I'm starting to long for the days when exepackers had simple three-letter acronyms instead of sounding like Pokemon :)

So we call the next one "MEW" and everyone's happy, right?

bifat ët neoscientists døt org. I don't have easy access to OSX and cannot build it for you. Isn't there some kind of Wine for MacOSX? Or use the Amiga version?

I heard good things about the second version of MEW

There's a line HOSTCC = gcc -m32 in src/Makefile. Chances are that by removing -m32 you can get a 64bit version out of it for OSX. Rebuild using make -B.
I think Bonefish created the latest OSX execuatble.
Let me know if that doesn't work, I may have access to a friend's OSX computer in the next days.

Here's a 64bit version for MacOSX, compiled by spkr:

nope, latest that i was compiled by me was 0.3, and when i did, it was dual binary for both 32 and 64 bits, exactly for this reason - very old macs (12+ years) can only use 32 bits, and anything that runs recent (last 3-4 years) mac os, can run only 64bit executables.

Code:file ~/bin/cranker_osx_v0.3 /Users/bonefish/bin/cranker_osx_v0.3: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [i386:Mach-O executable i386] [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] /Users/bonefish/bin/cranker_osx_v0.3 (for architecture i386): Mach-O executable i386 /Users/bonefish/bin/cranker_osx_v0.3 (for architecture x86_64): Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
