K., the Compiler Engineer, Uses a Terminal

K., a compiler developer, spends a lot of time running the testsuite, constantly monitoring for compiler crashes. For each crash, K. then has to go back and reproduce the failing scenario under a command line debugging tool so that it is possible to diagnose what is going wrong.

Using frysk, K. is able to monitor the entire build and test process. As soon as a compiler failure occures K. is alerted and can start analyzing the problem:

  • Right clicking the frysk icon in the toolbar, K. opens a terminal that is being monitored:
  • Using the terminal, K. starts the build:
  • A crash occures and K. is alerted by the blinking frysk icon in the toolbar:
  • K. can then click on the frysk icon and bring up the source window displaying the crashing program:
