Any way to make ROM calls visible?

I just want to know if there's a way (maybe a snooping program in background) to show if something - i.e. a simple DOS command - calls a ROM function and if so which one it is (name and maybe address).
My first intention led me to SnoopDOS, but it didn't show me any useful information. Perhaps I have to set it up properly first, but I couldn't find any suitable options.

What do you mean by ROM calls? The official API of AmigaOS is through library jump tables and only those functions have names. Direct call of ROM code is not supported, is not documented and there are no official function names.

@Thomas: Yes my request was a little confusing. What I actually want to know is if a library is opened (and which one it is) and then maybe which library function is called - name or address, both would do (name of the function would be more convenient of course).

@daxb: The readme of PatchWork looks promising. I will look into it...

SnoopDOS should be sufficient for most purposes. Click on Functions and change both System and AmigaDOS to All.

If you need every detail, you might want to use Snoopy, but you need a lot more knowledge to set it up properly.

I prefer to use SnoopDos AND LibSnooper, but also other tools like CodeWatcher and my own little utility LibXScounter
