journal contributionposted on 2003-01-01, 00:00 authored by Jennifer Mankoff
IIC (Information in Context) is an interactive programming environment meant to be used for profiling and tracing functions, as well as for visualizing information about functions. IIC runs in the Scheme interpreter STk and has both a graphical and a textual user interface. By integrating a profiling environment with a visualization system, IIC gives the programmer the power to dissect the internals of her program. In addition, IIC gives the programmer the power to control what data is gathered through the use of scope IIC makes it possible to evaluate the efficiency of functions and to easily identify bottlenecks. IIC can also be useful for debugging.
