Bug#612031: RFP: xscope -- Monitor X11/Client conversations
 
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

--- Please fill out the fields below. ---

Package name: xscope
Version: 1.3
Upstream Author: James Peterson, MCC, Keith Packard
URL: http://xorg.freedesktop.org/archive/individual/app/
License: X
Description: Monitor X11/Client conversations
XSCOPE is a program to monitor the connections between the X11 window
server and a client program. xscope runs as a separate process. By
adjusting the host and/or display number that a X11 client attaches
to, the client is attached to xscope instead of X11. xscope attaches
to X11 as if it were the client. All bytes from the client are sent
to xscope which passes them on to X11; All bytes from X11 are sent to
xscope which sends them on to the client. xscope is transparent to
the client and X11.

In addition to passing characters back and forth, xscope will print
information about this traffic on stdout, giving performance and
debugging information for an X11 client and server.

might not deserve its own package. I guess it could be shipped in one
of the x11-* bundles.

KiBi.

xoscope != xscope :)

If i can still find it with 'apt-cache search xscope' then this would be fine.

I don't mind if this is introduced in one of the x11-bundles or packaged as
a new package.

How does this one distinguish from xtrace?
