Utility for seeing which files are being hit
New to this forum. Wanted to start out by saying Hi to everyone!

I am a technical support rep for a company that makes ESL software. An update that we have is causing some problems, but only on the Mac, not the PC. The update is causing an OutOfBoundsException error.

I am looking for a Utility for Mac OS 9 that will show me what files are being queried when you run the executable for the program. On the PC side, has a little utility called Filemon that does what I need it to do, but I cannot find anything like this for the Mac. In order to work in Filemon, you run it, then run the executable that is causing the problem at the same time. You can then look over a log file Filemon creates and see every query to every file that the program made. Looking over the log file, you can can usually tell where the program is having problems or stopping. It's really helpful sometimes.

Is there such a thing for Mac OS 9?
