A note for Macintosh users

Nikolai Ruhe reports that if you are using MacOS X, you can use GCC to compile your C++ programs, as follows: If you are using an earlier version of MacOS, Navid Madani has suggested a technique that may be useful if you are trying to get the code from our book to work on a Macintosh. He has tested it using the MetroWerks CodeWarrior compiler. If you change your program in this way, then each time you run it, it will pop up a dialog box asking what files you want the program to use, and giving you the opportunity to supply other options.
