There is no app for 32 bit OSX intel machines (Core Duo). So these machines end up running the PPC app under Rosetta. Damn that's slow. How about a native 32 bit 32 bit intel app please?

Hi zombie67
Thank you for your message (and of course, your crunching!).
I have no immediate plans to produce a 32-bit OSX intel-specific app.
I don't have a suitable system to test it on (seems a _fairly_ niche setup), and I'd probably rather only host apps I've certified myself (to be honest - I know I'm paranoid :), but if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
[I guess this is (largely) the same reason I've been reluctant to make a Windows app, or as someone yet else suggested a Linux PPC app, even though they kindly offered to build it for me... anyway another thing for the wishlist if I ever move out of alpha ie we find the algorithm is a goer...]
I don't know if you'd be able to make one for yourself from the source I've published a link to elsewhere on this forum, but if you find you can, then I hereby grant you a non-transferable, non-exclusive right, to use that on your machines for WEP-M+2 in place of running under Rosetta.
