Thank you, Sidney – not only for your prompt and informative reply, but
also for your getting Enigma in its current incarnation to work on Macs,
as revealed by the 1.21 release note on the Enigma home page. I think
I'll play some Enigma II right now (again, having stayed with my older
Mac OS for specifically that purpose).
