5.7. The Debug Menu

Console: Debug/Spy

The Message Spy is a 'simple window' displaying all messages that arrive at the host server. Up to 100 messages are visible. The output can be redirected into a log file 'spy.lst ' with the button 'File Protocol' in the spy window.

Console: Debug/Process List

Xwio keeps a process list of all processes running on the Transputer. For debugging purposes the programmer can change the name of his current process using the PROLOG ' process_name ()' predicate. Any process can be identified by its TID (Transputer ID) and PID (Process ID). The Process List displays all processes known to the server with their TID/PID and process name.

Console: Debug/Trace

The 'Trace List' is the dialog controlling all debugging activities. From here you can start up ' Debug Windows ' and control processes. Refer to the section on ' Debugging ' for more information.

Console: Debug/Pause

This function halts all link activity until 'Pause' is selected again.
