Display of Functional Values for Debugging.
In: Draft Proceedings of the 18th International Symposium on Implementation and Application of Functional Languages, IFL 2006, Budapest, Hungary.
Functional values are used naturally in higher order functional programs, as they are commonly passed around or returned by other function. As such any debugger for these languages must be capable of conveying information about functional values to the user. Current debuggers are limited to displaying the name of the function, or a partial application. In this paper we study two alternative methods of displaying functional values, and their effect on a popular debugging method (Algorithmic Debugging).
