Dump Max window -> text file


    Apr 08 2006 | 5:52 pm
    Hi,
    I'd like to dump the contents of the Max window to a text file.
    Is there anyway of automating this?
    Thanks

      On Mac OS you could Automate or AppleScript this. But you don't say what platform you're on.

      I'm on OSX, I will look into the applescript route.
      It's a shame there doesn't seem to be any direct access within Max itself, it would be nice to be able to dump the max window into a log file for debugging long performances, especially when they crash Max...
      As it is I've used m.marcoll's nifty uconsole object to display and create a logfile of sorts. Naturally this only reflects what I choose to display, not the more useful error and warning messages in the max window.
      Thanks Peter

      You know the "error" object, don't you?

      there was some posts recently reporting problems with latest OSX update. Did you used the combo updater ? If not, maybe this will solve the problem.

      I'm not shure because, I used the automatic update.. Maybe I can download the combo updater and re-try again..
      Thanks..

      actually it does, the incremental updater destroyed a bunch of carbon libs. most fft things stopped working, (like for instance altiverb..?) but the combo updater fixes things again.

      The error message was complaining pretty specifically that it was trying to load MathLib without success. MathLib was the pre-Carbon library, and normally the only externals trying to load it are equally Boronic.
      But if the combo updater actually managed to screw up existing Carbon libs so that they tried to load MathLib, well, with sufficient screw ups anything's possible.

      Okay, so this is a known issue. After I saw the first few reports of the issue on this list I began poking at the problem. The patch updater nukes the resource fork on the vecLib CFM stub during the install. Unfortunately CFM needs the resource fork to locate symbols in the corresponding mach-o. In the future, we're going to be more careful about the way we patch binaries with this issue in mind. The vecLib library appears to be the only library that was affected, but enough folks use vecLib from CFM that there was massive bustage.
      In the meantime, the Combo update is infact the recommended workaround. If your auto update reports the download size to be under 65mb, please manually install the Combo update instead.
      thanks
