This week in Seven Languages in Seven Weeks brings the Io Language. Installing the binaries is, of course, the first task in beginning to use the language. However, I’m not off to a roaring start just yet.
After installing the binaries using the Mac package installer, I find that the
io binary is not found.
Let’s try this…
Hmmm… it is there, but I can’t access it… let’s look closer.
Well, that explains it. For some reason, MacPorts set up
/usr/local/bin/ with very restrictive permissions. And, apparently, I’m not the only one to run into this problem:

Let’s fix it with chmod.
Thanks to Jake Peck, creator of the Io binary installers, for his assistance in solving this little mystery.
Now, on to the fun stuff…
