Remove every trace of a program by reinstalling it
Authored by: vansie on Jul 12, '08 07:18:29PM
As I have to maintain several install images for Macs that are employed to end users, I tend to use the very reliable combination of logGen to record differences pre- and post-install of a given app feeding into pkgGen to build installer packages of apps that are not distributed as such. Instead of poking through fseventer output, I would highly recommend taking a look at logGen to sniff out all files and folders related to the app you wish to remove:
