Couple questions:

Do many of the Mel scripts out there have Mac compatibility problems?
Can they be easily fixed, like by correcting path syntax or other simple fixes?
Are there any good sources for info on this subject?
Thanks

1. yes there are issues.

2. yes some are very easy to fix, some, you need to figure out what exactly is the problem first, then try to fix. Some I fear would benefit from a complete GUI rebuild... so that getting them to work is easier.

3. Not that I have found, and I've asked around and searched using Google...

Must admit I very tempted to setup a Mac only Maya site to help solve this and collate Mac specific info/workarounds... but I'm not sure of how many Mac users out there would be interested....

Cheers.

Ok, that helps. I can't imagine why Alias has so little on the subject in their docs.
