Unresolved Issues with the Mac version of Oolite

Post by Cholmondely »

Sound cuts out http://www.aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17682 & viewtopic.php?f=2&t=19989

OXP's for Mac:
The Mac is more of a grammatical purist than Linux/Windows.

The libraries in the Mac used to parse a plist seem to be less tolerant of some things than the GNUStep libraries on Linux:

*lists are enclosed in '(' ')' with items separated by ',' and there must not be a comma after the last item in the list.
*objects are enclosed in '{' '}' and consist of pairs <key> = <value>.
Each key/value pair must have a ';' at the end, even the last pair in the object, and if the object is a value in a key/value pair in another object, it's closing '}' must be followed by a ';'.
Thanks to Dybal for this item!



This will be edited to include future accretions!

I loaded 400+ OXPs and those are the ones with un-parseable plists:

Code: Select all
