The Futhark Debugger

  • For languages that are intrinsically distant from the machine, however, even basic compilation results in machine code that requires major detective work to map back to what the programmer wrote.
  • This is a powerful debugging tool because it allows the programmer to invoke internal functions in an ad-hoc manner and inspect their results.
  • The core language interpreter had to pass the source program through a range of nontrivial compiler passes, for example the array representation transformation, before it was able to execute the program.
  • As a result, I took a couple of days in late August to fashion a new interpreter that operates directly on a type-checked source language program.
  • The following is an example of how to use the new interpreter, futharki, to inspect Futhark code.
