    If someone would write a GUI to integrate with this app, then it would be useful for more than the 1-in-a-1000 Mac users who are Terminal-savvy.

    After installation, the app is untraceable and therefore not usable! I've tried several times, but without any results!

    Why is Macupdate pointing to a compressed tarball of source files as the download when the developer provides a Mac install pkg in a dmg image file? To wit: https://sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ExifTool-10.65.dmg
