Recently, I’ve played around with some code to save BMessages to a file (e.g. to save settings). Because initally it didn’t always work as expected, I wanted a possibility to view what was actually written to the file. I didn’t find a tool for doing so, so I wrote one.
And here it is:
Compiles with the standard Haiku makefile engine and doesn’t need any additional libraries. As of now it’s only tested on x86_64, but should also work on x86_gcc2 with the modern gcc (setarch x86).
Would be nice if some of you could try it and let me know what you think. Also if there is already some tool with the same functionality available that I overlooked, please let me know.
Ah, well, before someone asks why it is named Kottan: It’s the name of a somewhat excentric police inspector from an Austrian TV series from the 1980`s
