Install compile tools on MacOs without that fat XCode

I got that when I tried to compile UADE on my Mac.

~ > make
-bash: make: command not found
~ >

so no ‘make’ on MacOs by default? huh?

And it goes worse, to get it (and other compile tools like gcc), you’re supposed to install the Apple Developer tools, which is included in XCode… Meaning you must first subscribe to the Apple Developer website, then download several gigabytes and install this piece of **** X(

There’s a great alternative (I found it on this excellent blog (in french) -> Sheevaboite).

It’s called OSX-gcc Installer.

there’s a pre-build .pkg bundle to download and run.

Just run the pkg, and no need of that huge and useless XCode install.

Thank you Sheevaboite!
