Compiling as you showed worked just fine to produce the MathLink executables 'delaunay' and 'contour.' However, there were compiler warnings when I applied gcc for both 'image' and 'mandelbrot', as follows (where i use "\" for continuation of input because the long command line input won't fit on a single line here: $ $MLROOT/mprep image.tm > image.tm.c $ gcc -o image -I$MLROOT -L$MLROOT -lMLi3 -lstdc++ -framework \ Foundation -lm image.tm.c image.tm.c: In function =91sendimage=92: image.tm.c:308: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function =91malloc=92 image.tm.c:321: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function =91sprintf=92 image.tm.c: At top level: image.tm.c:344: warning: prototype for =91sendimage=92 follows non-prototype definition $ $MLROOT/mprep mandelbrot.tm > mandelbrot.tm.c $ gcc -o mandelbrot -I$MLROOT -L$MLROOT -lMLi3 -lstdc++ -framework \ Foundation -lm mandelbrot.tm.c mandelbrot.tm.c:402: warning: prototype for =91sendimage=92 follows non-prototype definition And then, of course, when I load either ExtendGraphics`Image` or ExtendGraphics`Mandelbrot`, I get an error: LinkOpen::linke: Specified file is not a MathLink executable... Can you suggest how to fix this. Or, in the alternative, supply Macintosh OS X versions of the executables 'mandelbrot' and 'image' (compatible with current OS X versions).
