Sheesh, seems I was running the wrong shell, fixed that but ended up with this:
Pauls-Mac-Pro:~ paulcons$ brew update
Pauls-Mac-Pro:~ paulcons$ brew install --force openssl
Warning: openssl 1.0.2l is already installed, it's just not linked.
You can use
brew link openssl to link this version.
Pauls-Mac-Pro:~ paulcons$ mkdir -p /usr/local/lib
Pauls-Mac-Pro:~ paulcons$ ln -s /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/
ln: /usr/local/lib//libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib: File exists

No idea where this leaves me...
Gack, decided to see what might create smoke if I ran your client... it opened Terminal, started with a new window, spit a bunch of text at me, wanted my AMR logs, gave it that, there seemed no way to choose which option I wanted because the blinking cursor was buried in among the options. Managed to exit it, then re-ran it... hmmm now we are getting somewhere, it said to go the website and run a simulation! Clicked Simuation, set it for Gearing Strategy and low and behold, shit is happening. See updates on the website, see "50 setups of chunk 17 processed" think I've heard of that drug . Sheesh, now back to chunk 8... just hoping my 6 core 3.33GHz Zeon will make short order of this... going backwards, now on chunk 3!
Needless to say, ya need to have some stuff for before one even runs the brew installer. They made the same damn mistake, their top page jjust says "enter this in terminal." WRONG... I dug deeper and it turns out the xcode CLT MUST be installed AND it has to run from a bash shell and mine defaulting to tcsh. The average Mac user will totally punt on this. EVEN if the enlist a local techie.... they will get nowhere at all because the prerequsites are too buried.
