Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD TO DEBUG A SOFTWARE PROGRAM
(FR) APPAREIL ET METHODE PERMETTANT DE DEBOGUER UN PROGRAMME LOGICIEL
Abstract:
(EN) A method is disclosed to debug a computer program. The method provides a computer program comprising source code, and a listing of that source code. The method further provides a computing device comprising a data storage medium, and stores the computer program in that data storage medium. The method then runs the computer program, and subsequently detects an error condition. The method creates and saves to the data storage medium a dump file comprising (N) save areas. Using information abstracted from the dump file and the source code listing, the method reproduces the source code execution at the time the error condition was detected.
(FR) L'invention concerne une méthode destinée à déboguer un programme informatique. Cette méthode permet de fournir un programme informatique comprenant des codes sources, et une liste de ces codes sources. La méthode permet également de fournir un dispositif informatique comprenant un support de stockage de données, et de stocker le programme informatique dans ce support de stockage de données. La méthode de l'invention consiste ensuite à exécuter le programme informatique, et subséquemment à détecter une condition d'erreur. Cette méthode crée et sauvegarde dans le support de stockage de données, un fichier d'images-mémoire comprenant des zones de sauvegarde. La méthode de l'invention reproduit l'exécution des codes sources, au moment où la condition d'erreur est détectée, à l'aide des informations extraites du fichier d'images-mémoire et de la liste de codes source.
