pretrace is a preload library that allows specified (dynamically linked) applications to always be executed under a debugging environment. pretrace allows you to specify the percentage of invocations which will be traced, to help you "keep an eye" on applications without bringing the machine to its knees.

Release Notes: Faster application lookups were added by using a map file instead of parsing the config file each time. Percentage code was added so that every invocation does not have to be traced.
