Trifinty Ships New Palm OS Debugger

Trifinity Software is now shipping BugOff for Mac users Bug Off is a utility designed for graphically debugging code written for PalmOS applications. The app features simplified code checking and pre-built packages. According to Trifinity Software:

Trinfinity Software released today BugOff 1.0, a graphical debugger for PalmOS and MacOS applications.

In 2003, Palm developers that use the Macintosh platform lost the most popular integrated development environment available to them. This left many developers with a difficult decision: try to find a replacement IDE, switch from the Macintosh platform that they know and love to the Windows platform, or stop developing for the PalmOS. Thankfully, a very powerful open source package of tools was available called PRC-Tools to take the place of the abandoned development environment.

The crafty developers devised a way to use Appleis free Xcode IDE to act as a graphical front end to the PRC-Tools package. This solved almost all of their problems, except for the debugger problem. There was no graphical front end to the command line debugger.

BugOff gives you all the power of gdb in a graphical and intuitive interface plus additional time saving features including automatically saved breakpoints and scriptability.
