P&L Software has released FileMonitor, a freeware utility for Mac OS X.

It has been developed to monitor files for changes - tracking both what's happening on error messages to the Console in X, and when file or folder changes were made. It also opens a window showing new input.

The solution is aimed at software developers and system administrators trying to track process output or debugging information.

The solution is based on FileMonitor versions 1 to 3 for OpenStep and Mac OS X server. Sales director, Lee Cox said: "The recent launch of our Mesa spreadsheet for Mac OS X has made us aware of Mac users' huge interest in the Mac OS X platform." FileMonitor is available for download.
