is there any idea of writing a java version of the agent controller?
I have amd64 and I can't use the profiler since there's no AC for amd64.
I was considering getting the sources and trying to fix them for amd64,
but wouldn't it be better ir there was an AC in java?
Has this been considered, discussed?
any thoughts?

Any idea? Sure. I seem to recall (fairly recently... a couple of months
ago) some discussion of doing that. The discussion was in conjunction
with the planning of the IAC (in-process, Integrated AC)... I don't
recall exactly what the tie between the two possibilities was, and what
issues distinguished the two as separate approaches.

But I think that code reuse was the factor that swayed the IAC work
towards using as much of the existing RAC code as possible.

As Randy indicated, there is an "integrated" version of the Agent Controller
planned for TPTP 4.1 release that is partially written in java. But, the
AC's use of shared memory and named pipes, requires the use of C/C++ to
access the necessary system API for this functionality. Therefore, you
still have porting to deal with in this version. (The integrated version of
the AC expects that the profiled application must be running on the same
system as the workbench, because the AC runs in the same process as the
workbench.)

Please note that the Agent Controller as it exists today will be replaced
with a re-designed version in TPTP 4.2. The new AC was introduced in 4.0 as
a technology preview. In 4.1 it has matured, and in 4.2 it is expected to
replace the existing AC (allowing time for porting existing tools).

The new AC has already been ported to the Itanium and EM64T 64-bit processor
platforms (Windows and Linux). Plans for 4.2 are not fixed yet, but an AMD
64-bit port is on the list of possible ports to get done then - depending on
resources.
