Abstract

This is a diagnostic software routine that can be called from predefined, but selectively-enabled, locations in an executing program. Its function is to read and record a line of data (up to 14 bytes) and provide a row and column data matrix with each row corresponding to a line of read data and each column of data corre- sponding to recorded data which existed at various times at a specified data address location. In one applica- tion, up to 256 lines of data were recorded before overwriting began. Each recorded line of data contains an optional line number, the identity of the calling location, and data read at various address locations.
