MAK is a project that is on an evolutionary path. It is meant to be a "catch all" for mini-utilities and things that other apps don't do. You might find something to help out users, developers, and everyone under the sun. So launch the app, and see what it can do for you! If you find it has something of your liking, then please don't forget it's shareware. If it doesn't have anything you need, then check back in a future rev, as we might have added something you need. If there is some utility-esque function that you think it's crying out for, please send us your suggestion. We can't guarantee it'll be implemented, but it can't hurt to ask!

This is a shot of the Process Manager, which allows you to quit processes en masse or singly, or get detailed process information about each item, including how much memory they are using, and what their attributes are (this information is available via the "Get Info" button).
The Value Converter is every developer's dream: convert any value into any other. You can also take any value and AND, XOR, MOD, etc. with any other type of value.Check it out:
It also has a very useful Macintosh System Error list. Search for any arbitrary value or error number, and instantly get the error definition:
The Display Memory dialog is also great for developers who want to dump memory from a specific location, without using MacsBug or some other debugger type program.
