logtool is a small util I made to help me analyzing the tons of debug output MorphOS
produces everyday on my development machine. I decided to release it since others might
find it useful as well.
logtool's features are:
- Catching logs from ramdebug, serial or loading from a file
- Filtering out useless lines
- Coloring most important lines
- Configurable filters
- Possibility to run in background and popup on new debug
- No documentation (it's too simple to write any anyway)
logtool is FREEWARE
Updated ohcimon, better support for ohcimon logs
Changes in log filtering. Please note that the filter prefs changed and you might
need to recreate your filters. Support for firewire logs with OHCI1394Mon by Frank Mariak.
More issues related to file dumps fixed, including a nasty race. More in the .readme attached.
Fixes many weird issues with log analyzing code, source dumps should work better now
Logtool can be launched with a filelog as an attribute
Configurable objdump path + small fixes
This version was designed to make developers lazy :) Have a look at the new screenshot
Still not there, but moving forward. Added search, fixed * in process names
not being loaded correctly.
Make sure to update PowerTerm to 50.70! It fixes a serious problem all of you
probably experienced once in a while when using logTool
We're about to introduce new debugging standards on MorphOS :)
RTFM the enclosed .readme file and mind that it's an early alpha (should be stable tho)
"Apply filters" and "Apply coloring" in file logging actually work now
Added "Save Colored As..." to the menu
Fixed silly zeropage write hits when loading .db objects :)
Tweaked to work with PowerTerm 50.68+ (required!)
Fixed silly zeropage write hits when loading .db objects
Fixed a possible race on quit, about doesn't clear the display anymore
Closes the file directly after reading it (log from file mode)
Added spurious interrupt to default filter remove list
Fixed a case where logtool could report wrong function on hits (didn't load all
functions from the dump)
Added optional line enumeration for alfie
24.04.2005, 1.3 released
Whoopsie, apparently file loging was not initialised at startup, fixed.
17.04.2005, 1.2 released
This is a special version for lazy people that do not want to use objdump themselves.
You can now load an unstripped binary of your application and logtool will tell you
in which function your app crashed
5.04.2005, 1.1 released
Changes are: bugfixes in filtering, possibility to log stuff to a file
18.03.2005, 1.0 released
That's all for now :) Read the readme file in the archive for more info :)
17.03.2005, 0.9 released
Just noticed that doing a release every 20 minutes is annoying. OK, this time I fixed
the pb when the debug that got filtered out triggered deiconify and when new debug
caused the window to steal focus when already deiconified. Changed the "X" hotkey
again since it was confusing :) Thanks to henes and stan for pointing out some of the issues.
17.03.2005, 0.8 released
Aaargh... For some reason Save config function used "C" as hotkey which masked
clipboard support. Changed it to "X". Copying logs to clipboard works now.
17.03.2005, 0.7 released
Small update right after the initial release. Fixes non-working Menu->Quit,
adds: Menu->Clear, doubleclick on filter->edit.
