Abstract

This invention relates to a method for testing application software using an interactive debug facility (IAD). The method steps comprise under IAD control (a) generating a statement level graph depicting the transfer of control of the application software; (b) traversing a subgraph from an arbitrarily specified root node and identifying those nodes of the subgraph having attributes matching a predefined set of attributes; and (c) displaying a set of identified nodes as an acyclic graph, whereby further debug activities, such as breakpoint insertion, may be pursued.
