       macpack - Macintosh OS X Packager for managed gui assemblies


       macpack [options] assembly


       macpack   is   a   tool   used  to  package  managed  assemblies  (like
       System.Windows.Forms or  Cocoa#)  that  require  gui  availability  for
       deployment on Mac OS X.

       macpack  will  prepare  a  OS  X  compatible  bundle  from the provided
       assembly and resources.  The bundle will include the specified assembly
       as well as any of the provided resources (specified with the -resource:

       Developers can specify the kind of application  to  produce  using  the
       -mode:  argument.   This controls how the environment in the Mono class
       libraries is setup.


       -a assembly

       This option tells macpack where the managed assembly that you  want  to
       bundle  resides.  This option is also used to point to the shell script
       to launch in the case of a X11/Gtk# application.

       This is the same as just passing the assembly as an argument.

       -m [winforms,x11,console,cocoa] or -mode:[winforms,x11,console,cocoa]

       A value indicating the kind of  application:  WinForms  is  a  Winforms
       application running on Quartz;  X11 is an application that requires the
       X11 server to run;  console is a non-graphical application;   cocoa  is
       an application based on Cocoa#

       -n NAME or -appname:NAME

       This option specifies the application name of the emitted bundle.  This
       is what you will see in Finder.

       -o DIRECTORY or -output:DIRECTORY

       This option specifies the path to output the generated Application.

       -r RESOURCE or -resource:RESOURCE

       This option can be specified multiple times.  It will place a  copy  of
       each resource into the bundles resources directory.  Alternatively, you
       can use a comma separated list of resources.
