Testing Image Units

2006-01-08 04:05:00 UTC

Some of you may know that I’ve been studying Apple’s Core Image API — specifically, how to write an Image Unit. I just found this, buried in Apple’s website: Software Licensing & Trademark Agreements: Image Units.

What’s special about that? Read the page closely:

3. Download the Image Units Validation Tool (DMG). Use of this application is subject to the terms of the Validation Tool License (RTF) presented upon launch.

It’s actually a command-line tool, and the agreement is displayed when the image is mounted rather than when the tool is run, but nonetheless — it’s a tool that examines your Image Unit and attempts to compile its .cikernel file, and tells you if it finds anything wrong. Highly useful.
