There might be a pgdemo directory somewhere in the heasoft tree, but
maybe only for a source install.  I don't see it in the heasoft binary
distribution on my mac.  I have a copy in my pgplot installation, but
you might not have it.  Try to find pgdemo1; e.g.

find /usr/local/ -name pgdemo1

(root the find wherever you have local packages installed).

    juan> doesn't have strace :(

As is typical, the Mac renames things slightly.  It looks like it is
called dtrace; there is also dtruss:


dtrace is in /usr/sbin; you'll need to run it via

sudo dtrace

or as a system adminstrator.
