Help - recompiling old externals from source code
Nov 20 2020 | 7:50 pm
This is my first topic, so apologies if I posted it in the wrong category or something.
I have an HID device, to which I'd like to send messages to, not just receive, which is something that the built-in "hi" object can not do. I've found two old implementations (hi.tools by Max Egger and hidio by H.C. Steiner, O. Matthes and D. Merrill) that are too old to run on modern 64-bit macOS (originally compiled for PPC and 32-bit). However, the source code is still there - any advice on how to actually compile it for modern 64-bit Mac systems for someone who has never written a single line of actual code in their life? Or - and I know it is a large task, but I desperately need these objects, so maybe for a lesser fee - could I get someone to recompile them for me?
