It's not that bad on Mac OS X, Bruno!

You can install frameworks as much and often as you and your disk can  
afford (do you use Xgrid, TWAIN, VideoConference, Python, Tk, or  
ForceFeedback and DiscRecording frameworks?). The frameworks are  
lying around, sometimes in more than just one version. An application  
can use one when it binds to it at compilation time. A framework is  
just another kind of a shared library, and it's completely different  
from a kernel extension (kext)! Other applications do not use a  
particular framework because they do not know of its existence.

You can easily check which frameworks an application uses, on the  
command line:

	otool -L /Applications/<application>.app/Contents/MacOS/<application>

or, if you're *very* curious:

	apply 'otool -L "%1"' /Applications/*/Contents/MacOS/*
	apply 'otool -L "%1"' /Applications/Utilities/*/Contents/MacOS/*

(Before make your Terminal save more than 10.000 lines!)



Never be led astray onto the path of virtue.
