XTrace allows you to receive trace() data without the flash IDE. XTrace wraps around a custom socket server I wrote in java that will accept connections via XMLSocket on port 9994. To easily send trace data to the 'trace server' you can use the custom debug class included with the download. After calling debug.initSocket(""); all data passed to debug.trace() will be send through a socket and given to the 'trace server'. XTrace will display the data received from the 'trace server' in a floating window.

I hate to say it but this functionality is already built into the Flash Debug Player.

No need to setup extra classes, xml sockets, local connection gizmo's etc, etc.

Flash Debug Player will send trace's to a log file which can be viewed with tail (from terminal) and or any text viewer or log viewer...

It's a pity solutions to this problem have been built over and over and there was never any need, except for people to study the Macromedia / Adobe documentation a little closer, before wastng weeks (months?) creating these solutions.

visit flex2 livedocs for a good writeup or google flash debug player for a selection of guides.

(Works with Mac, Windows, Linux player versions)
