jspawnhelper in the cave application bundle on Mac is not executable #95
When trying to set up PyDev in an effort to get derived parameters working, I repeatedly got the message that spawning the Python interpreter failed.
I did some digging and found that this issue can creep up if jspawnhelper is not executable for whatever reason. Here is an answer from another Java project that led me down the right path: http://stackoverflow.com/a/31015371
Sure enough, this ended up being the problem. After manually making jspawnhelper within the Mac application bundle executable, I'm able to add Python interpreters as needed.
