Visualizing Aspects of Program Behavior



This chapter demonstrates Unicon’s execution monitoring facilities with examples of a variety of monitoring techniques. The examples are actual program fragments (rather than pseudocode) that show how to program various forms of monitoring. The examples all follow the common outline and monitoring facilities that were described in the preceding chapter. In particular, this chapter covers how to extract information in order to visualize:
