Late Night Software has updated Script Debugger, their scripting utility, to version 3.0.1, which addresses minor issues that came to light following the release of Script Debugger 3.0.
“While there was a high priority in making Script Debugger 3.0 Mac OS X native, the program contains a number of new and significant features that take script writing to a whole new level,” said Mark Alldritt, president of Late Night Software. “The stability and improved memory management offered in Mac OS X presented opportunities that we happily capitalized on in Script Debugger 3.0.”
Version 3.0 offered an Aqua appearance, trace command (it’s now possible to trace — continuous stepping — through a script), an Expressions window (which lets you enter expressions that are evaluated against the currently running script), Console palette (that allows you to execute script fragments against the current script) and Script Manifest. Regarding the latter, Script Debugger can now show the Scripting Additions and Applications used by a script. In addition, it can help locate missing Scripting Additions using the online
Scripting Additions database, according to
While Script Debugger 3.0 is Mac OS X native, it’s Carbonized and so continues to support Mac OS 8 and 9 systems (with the CarbonLib extensions installed).
