Modern software development is inconceivable without tools to inspect running programs. Run-time inspection is a crucial factor for both building complex systems and for maintaining legacy systems. Run-time inspection includes not only querying of program state but also controlling its execution. Applications of run-time inspection range from code-level tasks like debugging, profiling, tracing, testing, and monitoring to conceptual activities such as program comprehension, software visualization and reverse engineering. New applications incorporate run-time inspection as a programming concept in the style of event-condition-action rules.
