I need to use some piece of software for a school project: the NEAT package.
This package is intended for linux use though, and I'm on a mac.
I know I could use Virtualbox to emulate a Linux distro in my mac, but that would skip past the point of me using a mac in the first place.
That's why I want to try and compile/use this software on my Mac. Since I'm working on OS X, which is UNIX-based I was wondering if it would be possible to do this.
I see there's a cmake file present in the directory, which might enable me to compile it after all?
Let me point out that I've never ever compiled a piece of software before (using make, configure, etc.) so don't shoot me if this sounds like a stupid question.
Perhaps I could just use the c++ files, I don't know. I don't even know what the program will look like. Is it just a bunch of c++ headers that are put somewhere so that I can use them? Or is it a genuine GUI app?
