InputManager on OS X

Question

I was wondering if InputManagers are still part of Leopard and if there is a good example that would show me what are the use of it?

Solution

InputManagers are still available on Leopard, except:

  • they need to be in the Local domain (/Library/InputManagers); you cannot install them per-user any more,
  • they need to have appropriate privileges,
  • in 64-bit, they won't get loaded at all.

The Leopard AppKit Release Notes have more specific details.
