Pajek installation in MacBook OS X
See Anton Sisante
I think I fixed the problem. I put wine and wine bottler in the Appplication folder. In this way, the mac os can see that Pajek.exe is an app.

I think it's actually a difference in how they handle end-of-line characters. MacOSX uses ASCII(13)=carriage return and Windows uses ASCII(10)=line feed and ASCII(13)=carriage return.
On my Macs, I usually generate my Pajek data files from a Filemaker Pro database, then edit them in Microsoft Word and "Save As..." in "Text Only (MS-DOS)" format to take care of this problem. There are utilities to do this too, but I usually already have Word open, so it's pretty quick.
I have been using a set-up similar to Steve's on both a MacBook and a Mac Mini Desktop. Pajek running on Windows XP (home edition) under Parallels, now using Mac OSX 10.5.1 Leopard. Works like a charm. To move data from Windows applications (Filemaker Pro, DataDesk), I have had success with both DL files read into UCINET and, just for basic network data so far, Jurgen Pfeffer's Text2Pajek. What has worked best is exporting the data as text, opening the file in a text editor (I use BBedit) and copying and pasting to Windows. Simply dragging text files into Windows doesn't work so well because of the difference in the way in which Mac OSX and Windows handle tabs.
I've been running Pajek under MacOS X (under VirtualPC, Parallels, and using BootCamp) for 5+ years. I've never had any problems with it ...

Even without Parallels Pajek runs smoothly on my MacBook using Wine (http://www.winehq.org/)
