Zigzag requires perl v5, which is available for the Mac. Unfortunately
the current user interface requires the Curses library, which I believe
is not presently available for MacOS.
There are, however, two versions of Linux available for Mac hardware -
MkLinux (supported by Apple) and LinuxPPC. Both of these can be set up
in a partition on your Mac hard drive if you have enough free space.
We do plan to develop other user interfaces including a Web interface
which will allow you to view it through any existing web browser.
