With all the mathematics required in games or apps, why is there no such application like TriangleRuler for Mac OS X? Or Windows? Or cross-platform?

[edit] I myself am looking for a tool for Mac OS X or a cross-platform tool.

It would be a really handy tool to just be able to figure out an angle on screen, without having to write your own debug-graphics-class or functions or whatever.

For Windows : Try MB-Ruler - the triangular screen ruler. You can measure angles as well as angular distance using it. A perfect tool.

For Mac :Try Onde rulers. http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/38923/onde-rulers/

It is also good, but paid one. You can try it for 15 days.There are lot of rulers like vertical ruler, protractor etc. Here is their website, http://www.ondesoft.com
