little confused about what to put into it. The file name was truncated after
31 characters, which is too odd of a number to seem to have been done on
purpose by StuffIt. What caused the filename truncation? Without
understanding that, I am not sure how to help.
StuffIt Expander being a "carbonized" application, it may still contains code
that make sure filenames are truncated to 31 characters.
The Good Way to extract Unix archives under Mac OS X is to open the
Terminal and use gzip, gnutar and zip/unzip.
Java Home. Many Java applications require the identification of a "JavaI am not a Mac guy, so please excuse my ignorance. Is this something that
Home" directory during installation. The equivalent on Mac OS X should
always be /Library/Java/Home. This is actually a symbolic link to the
current installed J2SE version, and allows access to the bin subdirectory
where command line tools such as java, javac, etc. exist as expected. The
Mac people should already know? In other words, I wonder whether it is even
appropriate to address this in FOP doc as it is primarily a sysadmin issue,
or at least a Mac or Java issue. Also, what if /Library/Java/Home points to
a 1.1 or 1.2 java runtime? If we tell the user to use that, then FOP doesn't
work. Again, I am not sure what to recommend here.
Java under Mac OS X started with JDK 1.3. JDK 1.4 is in beta test. The JAVA_HOME issue should already be known by most Java programmers that work under Mac OS X, but it may be useful to recall the trick.
