I don't understand what you mean? What I meant is that I never use
XCode, and therefore I don't know which projects to choose or how to
use it, and it would take a lot of time to change that.

macosx-app *is* a 3rd party script - it doesn't come with OSX does
it? and it's still not as easy to use as an applescript. That's why
applescript refuses to die while being the hardest language ever
devised to write in. I also think the plist the macosx-app script
builds isn't that good.

It's pretty difficult to run the --help arg if you don't know the
script even exists. What's wrong with a README that says "If you're
having problems running your executable on OSX then you need to use
macosx-app in the bin dir..." ?

help and verbose. That's not helpful at all.
Use whichever method suits you best, but I shouldn't have to dick
around all day finding badly documented scripts that don't even work
as well as the one I had to do for myself, and perhaps others feel
