In order to be able to animate and/or debug the XASM program, a
graphical animation and debugging tool has been realized that enables
to stepwisely execute the ASM, to trace updates that has been
performed in each step, and to view function values in each step. In
case a grammar has been specified as input format for the XASM
program, a special kind of graphical animation window can be used to display
function values that refer to node in the parse tree. Figure
6 shows a screen-dump of a debugging session.
Additionally, an integrated design environment, incorporating the graphical user
interface is currently under development.
