Abstract

The article describes a method for recording an execution of program sub-modules in a display terminal. A value is assigned to each program sub-module, and the value is compared with a variable threshold value, which is specified by a programmer. The executed program sub-modules, the values of which exceed the threshold value, are recorded in a memory, and analyzed by the programmer. It is assumed that the display terminal executes a program module A including sub-modules A1, A2 and A3, a program module B including (Image Omitted) sub-modules B1, B2 and B3, and a program module C including sub-modules C1, C2 and C3, as shown in Fig. 1, and the display terminal is designed to execute the sub-modules in the sequence of A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, B3, C1, C2 and C3.
