archinfo v0.4.0 Released

My archinfo utility is a small macOS command line application that displays process id, name, and architecture (arm64 or x86_64).

Version 0.4.0 adds the following capabilities:

  • Added --x86 (-x short option) to have archinfo only show x86_64 processes
  • Added --arm (-a short option) to have archinfo only show arm64 processes
  • Added --basename (-b short option) to havearchinfo` only show basenames of running processes vs the full path

The key driver for this update was to make it easier to only see the remaining, non-universal binary or ARM-only laggards.

Example runs with the new options:
