Dear Simon,

One more question:
I have just unzipped gfortran-4.2-5564-darwin9.tar.gz. The version gives:
Using built-in specs.
Target: i686-apple-darwin9
Configured with: /Builds/gcc/gcc_42-5564/build/obj/src/configure 
--disable-checking --enable-werror --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man 
--with-gxx-include-dir=/usr/include/c++/4.0.0 --with-slibdir=/usr/lib 
--build=i686-apple-darwin9 --host=i686-apple-darwin9 
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5564)

This means that this version seems to be older than the one I am using now?

Where can I download the version Leopard gfortran 4.2.4 that you mention?

Best regards
