Look at objective-C messages being sent in an application running in the simulator. "Interesting" symbols (configured in the first BEGIN block, or one provided on the command line) will get stack traces dumped. "ignored" symbols are not logged.

/* Run like:
% sudo csh
# ./spy.d $PROCESS_ID [$INTERESTING_PROBEPROV]
Prints a line of dashes every 5 seconds to delineate different experiments.
