Terminal Script to find 32 bit apps

Postby vinnie-bob » Sat Apr 14, 2018 7:15 am

Future version of MacOS will not run 32 bit apps. Many websites advise you to invoke Apple's System Profiler and then manually look through a very very VERY long list of apps to see which are "64 bit: No". This is known as "the stupid way".

Be smart: copy the following unix script into Terminal and hit return. Wait. Your patience will be rewarded.

Code: Select all
system_profiler SPApplicationsDataType | grep -A 2 -B 6 "64-Bit (Intel): No"

You can also if you do not want to use terminal just open Activity Monitor go to the Memory or CPU tab and sort by Kind.

The coming SuperCard 4.8 is 32 bit according to Activity Monitor.

If SuperCard is not to fall by the wayside Mark is going to continue to be busy unless 4.8 has a surprise in store although I don't think WASTE is 64 bit.

All the best
