[brailleblaster] Re: Where can I find Mercurial for the Mac?

Hi John,

I am afraid that the USB to Serial adapter approach will not work as far as I 
am aware. The Mac doesn't seem to support any serial adapters.

You can use MacHG from the command-Line. It says that it is a GUI tool, but it 
has the command-line tools for Mercurial included.

The Mac Update URL for Mac HG is: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/36098/machg .

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Alex,
