    33=== Step 1: ===
    44
    5 Download **one** of the following:
     5Download this file:
    66
     7* https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/admin_pyGSAS/downloads/gsas2full-Latest-MacOSX-x86_64.sh (provides Python 3.7, all required Python packages and a recent version of GSAS-II which will be updated via the internet; can be installed on computers without an internet connection, but without that update.)
    78
    8 * https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/admin_pyGSAS/downloads/g2conda-1.0.1-MacOSX-x86_64.sh
    9    * This has contains the latest intercompatible Python packages, including Python 3.7, wxPython 4.0.3, !NumPy 1.51.1, !SciPy 1.1.0, matplotlib 2.2.3,... Since the code has not been fully tested with this environment, there is some chance for finding compatibility bugs we have not yet seen (but will certainly fix if reported.)
     9These links offer an older distributions that have worked for many people, if you have trouble with the previous (but please do report problems). Note that these installers require an internet connection:

    11 * https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/admin_pyGSAS/downloads/g2conda-py27-1.0.2-MacOSX-x86_64.sh
    12    * This has mostly the same packages as the above, but contains Python 2.7.x and an older version of wxPython (3.0.0). This may be a bit more safe with regards to bugs, but we are now recommending Python 3.x rather than this dist.
     11* https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/admin_pyGSAS/downloads/g2conda-1.0.1-MacOSX-x86_64.sh (Python 3.7, wxPython 4.0.3, !NumPy 1.51.1, !SciPy 1.1.0, matplotlib 2.2.3,...)
     12* https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/admin_pyGSAS/downloads/g2conda-py27-1.0.2-MacOSX-x86_64.sh (Python 2.7.x, wxPython 3.0.0...)
     13* ```g2conda-0.1.2-MacOSX-x86_64.sh``` from this URL https://anl.box.com/v/GSASII4mac12 (quite old, not recommended)
    1314
    14 or
    15  * Download file ```g2conda-0.1.2-MacOSX-x86_64.sh``` from this URL https://anl.box.com/v/GSASII4mac12
    16    * this is older and is not recommended, unless you have problems with the previous installers (older OS X versions?). This contains an older version of bootstrap.py, which does not handle proxies perfectly.

    56 After Python and packages are installed, the ```GSASII/bootstrap.py``` file (also called ```bin/gsas2-install.py```) is invoked to install the GSAS-II files using program svn (subversion) from the APS server ```https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/pyGSAS```
     54After Python and packages are installed, the ```GSASII/bootstrap.py``` file is invoked to create shortcuts and update the GSAS-II files using program svn (subversion) from the APS server ```https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/pyGSAS```

    59 This script requests the name of a proxy server. Most people will use the default and press return. However, some sites block web traffic unless it is passed through a particular computer. If needed, enter that computer name or IP address here (e.g. proxyout.lanl.gov). You will be requested to also supply a port number, which defaults to 8080.
    60 
    61 Note that the location of the Python image is shown here (```/Users/toby/g2conda/bin/python```) this is worth noting in case you have installation problems and need to rerun the bootstrap.py script (see below).

    65 Once the svn command is executed a large number of files are downloaded ending with display of the current GSAS-II version number.
     60There will be a brief delay while the installer script processes the files and creates a shortcut app for starting GSAS-II. Note that the warning message "Sorry, failed to find..." will occur with older installers.

     62Then an svn command is executed an update to the
     63current GSAS-II version number and newer files are downloaded
     64(if an internet connection is available.)

    69 There will be a brief delay while the installer script processes the files and creates a shortcut app for starting GSAS-II. Note that the warning message "Sorry, failed to find..." is expected for this installation (and will eventually be removed).

    7170The final question to be asked is should the installation location be placed into your system's path. If you plan to run other Python scripts from the command line, you may want to type "yes", but this is not needed for GSAS-II, so the suggested answer is "no".
