Abstract: TRACE/TR are meant as debugging tools for writing
assembly language programs. When implemented and
directed to do so, either program will, upon completion
of execution of an instruction in a section of code
being traced, print out the location in memory of that
instruction, its mnemonic and arguments as well as the
contents of all registers and memory locations referred
to. They then return to the traced program for the next
instruction. The resulting output is a listing of
exactly what instructions were executed and what
happened because of it.
TRACE.MAC is a subroutine that must be linked in with
the program to be traced and be initialized by it.
TR.MAC is a pseudo device driver that is assembled and
linked to TR.SYS, entered into the monitor device driver
tables. The user does not have to link it into the main
program each time.
Both versions can be modified to direct their output to
the LP: rather than the console device.
