Process control within Classic Classic
There is a great utility for OS 9.1 from Clarkwood Software called Peek-a-Boo (PaB). This is the best utility I've seen for monitoring processes that run inside Classic. When xload or ProcessViewer shows that something has pegged the CPU, run PaB and it will tell you WHICH process within Classic is hung, and often/usually succeed in letting you kill the offending process using PaB.

You can read about and download PaB from Clarkwood Software's Peek-a-Boo page.

I agree, great software. Unfortunately, it is never going to be useful on OSX but it still has great utility for classic. Apple should do a deal to bundle it with OS 9.1 classic so people have the equivalent of the process monitor under classic.

Highly recommended.
