BugSpray for Mac OS X
For Immediate Release Barry Software Releases Public Alpha of BugSpray for Mac OS X May 9, 2002: Barry Software announces the immediate availability of a public alpha of BugSpray, the new automated debugging tool for Carbon Mac OS X developers. WHAT IS BUGSPRAY? BugSpray is an automated debugging tool - instead of waiting for your program to crash, BugSpray closely monitors the executable code and catches problems at the exact point they occur - rather than at the point that the computer crashes - which can be completely unrelated. BugSpray specializes in the hard to find memory errors, involving out-of-bounds memory accesses, accessing stale memory blocks - the sorts of errors that can take weeks to nail down, or only appear in non-easily reproducible situations (e.g. during a demo to your most important client). While the memory protection of Mac OS X is great for catching NULL pointers and those uninitialized pointers that allowed you to crash other programs (or the OS), it still...
