>>Does anyone know of the status of any work in the area of sophisticated >>(easy to use and simple to improve) tool for development of Inferno >>applications and their successful debugging? i use: development: Acme debugging: wm/deb specification and validation: Promela/spin except that the last should be first, since that reduces the time spent in the other two phases. it definitely qualifies as `sophisticated'. seriously, if you are doing any non-trivial concurrent programming in Limbo, the time spent using spin to validate a Promela model is amply repaid in time available to go down the pub instead of spending time in wm/deb saying ``what!? how?! ... well, i suppose ...''. having said that, the concurrent programming required to interact with Tk, say, seems stylised enough not to require detailed modelling. i've found wm/deb good at pointing out the infernal null reference that caused a trap.
