    i too am having the same problem...i installed them through installer.app and then found that they were in /usr/local/bin however when i try to execute any of the commands. i get a prompt saying command not found. So then i jsut chmod +x * in the /usr/local/bin dir and still get the same error msg saying command not found

    Default How to Use?
    I, like many others, can find this useful. However, I, like many others, do not understand "how" to use Erica's utilities.

    Can someone please provide a simple example? Thanks.

    how to use snap:

    1. go to the screen u want to take a snap of.
    2. SSH into your iphone and type "snap" and then a name for your snapshot and then press enter. so for example i type "snap calculator" and it'll create a snapshot called calculator.png
    3. now u need to use an SFTP client to login to ur iphone. a good one for macs is Cyberduck and for windows there's WinSCP.
    4. navigate to /private/var/root within your SFTP client and there you will find your snapped file.

    Ace, thanks for the tip. I found another trick:

    "snap2album" as the command will place the image in your camera roll, too.

    huhwha? still have no clue

    The one I really want to use is "sendFileByMail" from what I gather, I can store files that I commonly email to clients (logos, price sheets, etc) and then use this to attach those files to an email. I wish they would just write this as an app like they did "SendSong". That app works great!

    what you posted above for the snap program seems too cumbersome to be useful.

    I do appreciate the help though

    MrNoSox:
    In mobileTerminal type the following:
    cd /usr/local/bin/
    ./sendFileByMail /path/to/the/file/you/want/to/send.ext

    That should open mail and attache the file for you.

    Is there anyway we can make this a little simpler and run sendFileByMail from any directory? Instead of always having to first go to the /usr/local/bin directory ?

    Is there a way to add new paths?

    No, that's just the folder cache file in OS X. You don't need to copy them over.

    I really wish this were easier. It's very cumbersome to have to type out a file path every time you want to attach a file to an email. How hard would it be to actually develop this into and application like the SendSong app?

    Just put /usr/local/bin into your Unix path. Then you can run the utilities wherever you are.

  21. #19
