Converting bin and cue files to iso in OS X

I'll just leave *this here:

1. Xcode Developer Tools should be installed. (http://developer.apple.com/mac/) (Apple ID required)
2. Download bchunk from (just right click and download/save file): http://jamesnsears.com/code/bchunk.zip
3.  If your Mac hasn’t unzipped the file automatically, extract the .zip file by double clicking it and copy it to your home folder:
/Users/[your username]
4. Go to your Applications/Utilities folder, open Terminal and type (you can copy and paste):
sudo cp bchunk /usr/bin/
sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/bchunk
After I did this, Terminal asked me for my administrator password, go ahead and type it in and hit Return/Enter.
5. Copy your .bin and .cue files to your home folder (where bchunk now also resides), and in Terminal type:
bchunk input.bin input.cue output.iso
In place of input.bin and input.cue type the names of the .bin and .cue files you want to convert)
6. You’ll see your .bin file convert to an .iso file in the Terminal window and you’re done. You can mount the .iso onto your Desktop now, or burn it in Disk Utility/iTunes or Toast depending upon what kind of files are enclosed.
