It turned out to be very easy to get a working Otterly CCD CLI for MacOS X, as the operating system uses the same underlying tty-system as linux.
It was literally just a matter of getting my hands on a Mac (that was the hard part) and setting up the proper environment for compiling.
One needs to install:
- command line tools
The compiler options need to be modified slightly (link to argp) so there'll be separate MacOS download (shortly).
The tty-naming scheme on MacOS X is confusing. The serial device to connect to is not tty.usbmodemxxx but cu.usbmodemxxx
Of course if you don't care for compiling it yourself, you can just use the precompiled binary. In that case, the only dependency is glib
