K Framework
Abstract:This works presents the K debugger - a language independent program debugger. The debugger is a part of the suite of tools that form the K framework. Conventional language dependent debuggers rely on an ad-hoc model of the underlying programming semantics, and may thus be incapable, or inaccurate in their ability to rectify a program’s behavior. The K debugger uses a different approach - it’s parametric over the K semantics of the programming language, which exposes accurate and subtle faults. The K debugger generalizes behaviors of conventional debuggers, providing users with a uniform interface that works across programming languages. Moreover, the K debugger is formal, performant and highly configurable, allowing it to adapt to the any programming language. This makes the K debugger a suitable replacement to traditional language specific debuggers.
