Reanimator is a utility for automatically restarting all applications and background-only processes killed by another
process. It can also be used to quit all running processes and restart them later. A process is a program running on your
Mac. When you launch an application, you start a new process. Desk accessories are also processes, while control panels
are treated as extensions of the Finder process. There are also processes that don't show up when running: they are called
background-only processes. Many shareware and freeware extensions run as background-only processes. Reanimator
itself, works that way.
I'm used to run a number of applications and extensions in the background (DŽcor, MyEyes, DragThing, Eudora and
other occasional utilities) and I was tired of relaunching each one of them after running an installer, rebuilding the desktop
using a dedicated utility or running a game instructed to quit all other processes, including the Finder.
Reanimator accomplishes this task in a single, quick operation.
Version 2.0.6 fixes compatibility problems with Kaleidoscope and the Appearance Manager control panel, as well as requires Config Extension 2.0 or later
