Installing polymake on Mac OS

Here is a quick update about installing polymake on Mac OS.

polymake can be installed on all current versions (Big Sur, Monterey, Ventura).

There is a binary build for Mac OS 11.3 on intel Macs here. We cannot provide binaries for Macs with M1 or newer OS versions (lack of hardware to build the binaries).

In all other cases you should compile from scratch following this guide. This has been tested on various recent Macs (intel/M1) and MacOS versions. Note that, as explained on that page, you have to install the command line tools, perlbrew and homebrew along with the required packages before you can start compiling polymake.

If you have any further questions please ask here in the forum.

The homebrew formula is now updated for version 4.9 and should work on all Intel/M1 macs with Big Sur or above:

Code: Select all

brew tap apaffenholz/polymake brew install polymake
