I present a new, and hopefully useful, debug tool to the tads community:
the Scroll of Variables and Flags.
basically is a readable whose shown the content of variables or flags:
knoscroll: Readable 'knowledge scroll' 'Scroll of Knowledge' "this is not a mere scroll: is the Scroll of Variables and flags, that is, an impish tool for monitoring the state of variables and flags" // hope that with tabs, lines remain <78... readDesc = "\t\t<b>State of monitored variables and flags:</b>\n \t\t\tVARIABLES:\n variable 1: <<var1>>\t variable 2: <<var2>>\n (and so on...)\n \t\t\tFLAGS: (T = True, N = Nil)\n flag 1: <<flag1? "T" : "N">>\t flag 2: <<flag2? "T" : "N">>\t flag 3: <<flag3? "T" : "N">>\n (and so on...) ";
The usefulness in testing and, I hope, also testing, is obvious, or at least I think is obvious.
it’s Open source, so please feel free to use it, but I hope that improved versions will be open-sourced and shared…
