Re: Mac OSX Opening .app & UNIX EXEC

in reply to Mac OSX Opening .app & UNIX EXEC

I tried a few experiments to get around this, but all have failed. One of which was to use the "open myapp.app" shell command which doesn't re-open the application at all (no error or anything).

Man pages are your friend:

NAME open -- open files and directories SYNOPSIS open [-a application] file ... open [-b bundle_identifier] file ... open [-e] file ... open [-t] file ... open [-f]

You want the -a flag

    "open myapp.app" in the terminal works fine without the -a flag. But for testing reasons, I also compiled it with the flag and it still doesn't open (no error either).

[Corion]: Yaerox: That's a somewhat hard problem. Encode solves the conversion part, but for guessing what encoding a file is in, that's the hard part
[Corion]: Yaerox: There is Encode::Guess, but that needs a limited set of inputs, and it also cannot handle multiple single-byte encodings
[Corion]: If you have a BOM, that's a really easy way to recognize UTF-8. Otherwise, you can try to decode a file from UTF-8, and if that works OK and doesn't crash, most likely the file was valid UTF-8
[Corion]: But as "ansi" (Latin-1?) is a single-byte encoding, any file is a valid ANSI file
