>>> Everything, with respect to TeXShop and TeX, is working beautifully here. It was a matter of curiosity that generated "the problem" and I apologize for that. On reading your advice, to another person, about using the 'sudo' command above, I tried it out -- out of curiosity -- and could not fathom the response received from the bash shell. In other words, my only "problem" was not understanding the response from the bash shell after executing the 'sudo' command. My apology for the confusion that my reply has caused.

>> The output you saw was just a review of what updmap-sys did and there was nothing in it that was of any concern. It started by telling you where it was finding base information and where it was going to write the update. It then went on to tell you the changes it was making (which are fine too) and finally it reviewed the number of fonts that it had in the configuration file and none of these had changed. No need to worry.
> Very good, thanks for the explanation. I ran the 'sudo' command again, and this time the response was rather tame and not intimidating. You, and many other persons, are doing one hell of a job in maintaining TeXShop and related programs. This TeX system has to be one of the most amazing software systems I've ever used. It never ceases to impress me with all the neat things it can do. Thanks very much for your support.

I try to help out answering questions (not always successfully) so that the folks that do the REAL work of putting TeX Live and then MacTeX and TeXShop, etc., can have time to do that work. The real credit should go to hundreds of folks that contribute to what becomes TeX Live (Hey, go to the TUG web site, <http://www.tug.org/ and make a small contribution!) and Dick Koch for putting together MacTeX and TeXShop. Of course there are still others in the background. I had help for many years via many lists, etc., and now that I'm retired I want to ``pay back'' the community that helped me; that's the way free software should work.
