Hi everyone. I'm developing a program on Ubuntu 10.10. The directory in which my project lives is part of my PATH. The executable that is built is called 'autobot'.
ln autobot a
(And my program runs correctly).
svn add a
Now on my OS X box, with the current directory set to the project directory, and with that directory also being a part of PATH (although it is not named identically to the Ubuntu one), I type:
And I get:
-bash: /source/Autobot/autobotwiki/a: cannot execute binary file
ls -l a gives me:
-rwxrwxrwx 1 richard admin 55295 26 Apr 10:33 a
The same thing happens if I create the link on OS X and try to run it under Ubuntu. So how do I do this?
