Ok. I merely meant that if you're having trouble using newer clang on older systems, and if tradcpp doesn't have those problems and works fine (I have no idea if that's the case), and you want consistency between all OS X versions, then you could always use tradcpp. Just wanted to make sure you're aware tradcpp exists and could be tried out.
