My daughter is leaving for a risky foreign country next week, and the country has some limited Internet censors there. I want to provide a way for her to send me secret steganography messages in any time of danger or potential danger, if this is possible.

I have Ubuntu Linux, so I have learned of the outguess command for it. On OS X, I wanted to know if there's a command line command for this. In other words, how to compile Outguess on OS X.

P.S. Perhaps I am an overly protective father for her, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

A father concerned about the welfare of his daughter, even a half a world away? There are fathers who don't even care about their daughters in the same country. I salute your attitude. – surfasb Aug 14 '11 at 14:46

You'll need to compile it from source. You should download the source archives provided, install the OS X Dev Tools provided by Apple, and then build it as you would a standard linux application (typically, run a configure script if present, then make, then make install if such an option is provided). A quick googling does not reveal any prebuilt OS X binaries or packages for this program, but it shouldn't be too hard to get it compiled up yourself.
