NFO viewer for OS X #

Looking for a simple NFO viewer for OS X, I found the cross-platform, open source NFO Viewer and started to install:
$ sudo port install nfoview
After over 30 minutes of dependency installs and still no end in sight, I resumed the search. This time I hit upon NFOViewer, "a Mac OS X application for viewing documents containing ASCII art ('nfo', 'asc' or 'diz' documents)." On the plus side, it is a Universal Binary and renders NFO files neatly. On the minus side (for some), source code does not appear to be available despite the app being hosted on SourceForge. Just the same, if you need to view an NFO file now, NFOViewer may be the better choice.
