has released version 3.2 of
DTerm, a developer utility that provides an external tool to display and capture diagnostic information. The new version adds the ability to specify the default buffer size and includes better documentation.
DTerm provides an interface for displaying diagnostic and debugging information in real-time from your applications. Each application has its own window, and can intelligently merge the contents of multiple windows into a single window, showing the interactions between multiple applications. In addition, DTerm can display the formatted contents of data structures with a single call. Plus, it’s the first real-time debugging application for Mac OS X that doesn’t require additional interaction from the developer, according to Glenn Austin, DTerm lead developer.
Version 3.2 offers better memory utilization so that more output can be saved, while allowing developers to specify how much output will be saved, according to MacTech magazine (http://www.mactech.com). In addition, the current preferences are used when creating a distributable monitoring application so that customers can provide the output in the format that developers specify.
DTerm 3.2 is a free upgrade for users of previous versions, and is US$64 for new users. It’s now available for download. DTerm 3.2 requires Mac OS X or Mac OS 9.x, 64MB of RAM and 2GB of disk space.
