Hermes BBS

Open source version of the Hermes BBS for Classic Mac OS (System 6 and 7) computers. You will need a copy of THINK Pascal 4.0.2 in order to compile Hermes. The build environment is designed for a PowerPC-based Mac OS X computer with a full Classic install.

See the Hermes BBS web site for more information.

Compilation

Open a Mac OS X terminal and type ./prepare.sh working. That will create a Working directory with THINK Pascal project files, resource files, and source files. You can then build and edit the code in the Working directory with THINK Pascal.

When you are ready to commit your changes, type ./prepare.sh source. That will copy changed source and resource files from Working back into the Git source directory. Note that the THINK Pascal project file will not be copied as it changes on every build and rarely needs to be checked in. Actual changes to the project file can be prepared with ./prepare.sh project.
