Monitoring ALL Apple events
Authored by: noworryz on Mar 21, '03 11:09:30AM

Doing what the hint suggests monitors events being sent and received by the Finder and the applications it launches. Monitoring stops when your log out. If you want to permanently turn on monitoring of all Apple events, whenever you log in, you can add AEDebugSends and AEDebugReceives to your ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist file, defining their values as 1.

You may have to create the both the directory and the file. Apple's QA1067 document tells you how.

Monitoring specific applications?
Authored by: gctuser on Mar 23, '03 01:01:22PM

Is it possible to set the environmnt variable in a way that restricts the console-output to specific applications?
