I got it to work on Mac OS X 10.2. I haven't tried 10.3 yet. On 10.2 it compiled fine "out of the box" so to speak.

I'm not using it for terminal emulation, though. I'm really using the scs2ps process. I made a change to the scs2ps to handle my printing needs. I don't know if the software has been updated since, as once I got it working, I left it alone. It's been very reliable.

In the scs2ps_process34() function:
• Change “scs_avpp();” to “/* scs_avpp(); */”
• Add a line under the “case SCS_AVPP:” line: “current_line = fgetc(stdin);”

This change allows vertical positioning to work correctly, which I use since I am handling formatted output (bills, statements, etc.).

I also tweaked some margin settings and character width settings to suit my fancy.

Hope this info is helpful to someone,
