Well, sort of.
In Windows, I debug my plugin using GePrint(). It is very accurate at telling me where in the plugin things went awry - very accurate: I can isolate a single line. And, to boot, Windows doesn't make C4D disappear in a "Poof!". I can look over my print statements and then dismiss at will.
On the other hand, MacOS seems to have two problems. The first is that, yes, "Poof!", C4D is gone thus I have to keep a vigilant eye upon the Console Window. But that wouldn't be such a problem if it weren't for the second problem. Unlike Windows' (eh hem) rock-solid accuracy, my GePrint()s under MacOS don't seem to have any rhyme or reason relating to the cause. Maybe this is because the OS is too busy poofing the application out of existence? I don't know, but I can't use GePrint() statements to localize my trouble spots. It makes for arduous, tedious, and time-consuming debugging. And to boot, the compiled code produced by CodeWarrior/MacOS is, let's say, touchy. Code that works flawlessly under Windows requires days to translate into CodeWarrior/MacOS code that works.
Is there a better method for MacOS? I can't stand implementing working Windows code into MacOS code that crashes C4D with no way to determine the cause.
