As far as i can tell, Turing only has Windows support. The only way to run it would be on a Windows computer. I looked for websites that will run it, but could only find Turing machine simulators.
As for Turing support in Atom, syntax highlighting doesn’t need to run the language. Someone just wrote a bunch of rules about the grammar, and they get applied to the text. That’s why it works on any computer.
Installing Xcode, etc, will ony help if tools that do run the language need that. As I couldn’t see anything that actually runs Turing on a mac or on Linux, it won’t help.
I don’t know what your options are now. There are things like wine, which can (sort of) run Windows programs on mac and Linux. I’ve hardly used it, and the one time I did it was weird and buggy.
Alternatively, and this is something I’ve done myself, you can use Bootcamp to install Windows on your mac as well. This lets you load either macOS or Windows as your operating system, but the partition size is fixed. You’d need to decide how to split the staorage, based on what you currently have free, what you expect you’ll store on Windows, etc.
You’ll also need
- An ISO of Windows 10 (from the Microsoft website; is free, the only difference between the free and paid versions is a watermark in the bottom right corner and the desktop image will reset every half hour or so),
- A USB 2. I tried with a USB 3 on my 2013 model with no success. I believe some later models don’t even need the USB though.
- To backup before you start. My computer “died” when I tried it the first time, and everything was wiped (at least, it was when I reinstalled macOS after things stopped working).
- Time and patience. I had my share of difficulty (^ obviously). I can say it works now though, and the end result is better than an emulator could hope for.
