proc startVdebug(rootname: string)

Start logging events for VisualDebug. Open a new set of data files, one for each locale, for chplvis. This routine should be called only once for each program. It creates a directory with the rootname and creates the files in that directory. The files are named with the rootname and “-n” is added where n is the locale number.


rootname – Directory name and rootname for files.

proc tagVdebug(tagname: string)

Add a tag to the data for chplvis to allow “view points” in the data.


tagname – name of the tag

proc stopVdebug()

Stop collecting VisualDebug data and close the data files.

proc pauseVdebug()

Suspend collection of VisualDebug data. Use tagVdebug to resume.
