Just a quick note to thank you all for answering my questions in
Very helpful and lots of information from people who probably know
much more on Mac OS X and Unix than I will ever do.
Nevertheless it is interesting to have an idea why things are as they
are, so I probably won't stop asking things.
I'm focussing on TeX things now...

first of all thanks a lot for answering my questions regarding the
MacTeX installation additions and extras. It is very clear to me now.
Since I do not have a lot of experience in using (La)TeX on a Mac so
far, I have some more rather fundamental questions on MacTeX:
- In the MacTeX readme file it is mentioned that the real directory
structure of the MacTeX installation (e.g. usr/local or /usr/local/
texlive/2007) is not visible in the Finder. Instead only Alias of
these directories are accessible under Library/TeX/Root.
Why is it so?
Is there a way to see the real directory structure either in the
Finder or somewhere else?
- Is it correct that "personal" files (e.g. bst-files) should be
saved under ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex so that MacTeX can access these
files when needed?
- Are all files in this folder (and subfolders) saved under /usr/
local/texlive/texmf-local/ and are they accessible by any Tex
Thanks a lot in advance!
