    35Until recently, wxPython (the GUI package needed by GSAS-II) was only compatible on the Mac (OS X) with 32-bit Python.  This changed with version 2.9 of wxPython. This can be obtained as part of the 64-bit [https://www.enthought.com/downloads/ Enthought Canopy] package.  There are two significant advantages of use of a 64-bit Python interpreter: it allows for larger projects and it is supposed to be faster (we have not noticed much difference).  There are two disadvantages: GSAS-II has not fully been debugged with wxPython 2.9 and at present the app created using the Canopy install does not have all the Mac flourishes working properly (wrong Icon, wrong app name).  I have heard of problems with installing the old EPD version of Python for OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), so until I check that out, here is how to install GSAS-II for 10.9.  My guess is that 10.8 will work quite similarly.
