launchd pain

2007-10-22 21:45:19.65159+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

More Mac pain, put here because searching around on the web for an answer brought up all sorts of answers, none of them this one. If, when you try to run launchctl filename.plist to try to load and run a launchd file, and you get

launchctl: propertyList is NULL
launchctl: no plist was returned for: filename.plist

Perhaps your XML is invalid. Try the:

perl -MXML::Parser -e '$p = new XML::Parser(Style=>"Debug"); $p->parsefile("filename.plist");'

trick to see where.
