Title: BAIL: a debugger for SAIL.
Author: Reiser, John F.
Date: October 1975
Abstract: BAIL is a debugging aid for SAIL programs, where SAIL is an
extended dialect of ALGOL60 which runs on the PDP-10
computer. BAIL consists of a breakpoint package and an
expression interpreter which allow the user to stop his
program at selected points, examine and change the values of
variables, and evaluate general SAIL expressions. In
addition, BAIL can display text from the source file
corresponding to the current location in the program. In may
respects BAIL is like DDT or RAID, except that BAIL is
oriented towards SAIL and knows about SAIL data types,
primitive operations, and procedure implementation.
