Is there any way by program, declare or plugin, to get a list of the recent applications which have been run on Mac OS X ?
The idea is to display a list of the 10 last run apps which most may not be running.
I can monitor regularly running apps through a shell to ps -A and build the list from there, but if that was already done by the system, it would be great. Especially on first run of my app, which by hypothesis will not have the list if I build it from ps.
I believe that you can make a program that would have a Listbox and a timer in mode = 2 would record through an applescript launched the programs and would list in the listbox, I do not know exactly what code Applescript but I’m pretty sure it would work, however, this program would have to be running in background all the time on the machine, so it could be launched at startup items …
