    PortMIDI on OSX

    Hello Y'all,

    I've been looking for a few days now for a starting point on sending some midi messages out of a C++ program using portMIDI library but cant' seem to find any concrete documentation / examples on how to do this on OSX. I was led to the forum by an example which uses the windows.h so it was of little use to my. Anyone got any good hidden resources?

    -Charles

    Did you look in the pm_test directory?

    Progress!

    I tried to run pmtest.c with portmidi.h and porttime.h in my xcode project (like the includes suggest).

    PROBLEM: Didn't build the xcode file like the readme suggests.

    SOLUTION: I used CMAKE on the "portmidi" folder and then used the option to build using xcode to my application folder. This made me xcode folder which was necessary. Then I could build and run test.c in the "test" folder and can now probe my midi ports!
