Installation

See here for how to get the LUI binaries.

Debugging Features in LUI mode

The LUI mode can be activated with the -l option, assuming yzlui exists on PATH (also see AceFaq). While in LUI mode, lots of additional debugging features are available as "colon" commands:

Getting the yzlui binary on your PATH

On Linux, you can get the yzlui binary from within the LOGON tree. You'll need to copy it to somewhere like /usr/local/bin/ or else modify your PATH environment variable to point to the directory containing yzlui. You can also download a (relatively recent but not necessarily maximally up to date) yzlui binary from here (again, it will need to be renamed 'yzlui' and put somewhere visible to PATH).

On MacOSX, the situation is slightly more complex and much less tested. Download yzlui for OSX here, and follow the INSTALL instructions. Good luck!

A few further tips for those not too familiar with Unix systems and terminal commands:

Suppose you downloaded the archive to your Desktop. You can typically expand it by double-clicking on it, but an alternative way is to open the Terminal application (use Search if you can't locate it immediately: the looking glass icon in the upper right corner) and type:

cd ~/Desktop

tar xzf yzlui-for-osx.tgz

cd yzlui-for-osx

Then to follow the instructions:

sudo cp yzlui /usr/local/bin

(it will prompt you to enter your administrator's passowrd)

sudo cp *.dylib /usr/local/lib

sudo cp -r yzlui.app /Applications

If the last stop doesn't work, this maybe because Mac hides the extension of the file. In this case, note which file appears in the Finder as type "Application" and move it to the Applications folder manually.
