Last week, I presented a short paper and a poster at SAC 2013, Coimbra, Portugal. They were entitled:
A Novel Approach for Interactive Debugging of Dynamic Dataflow Embedded Applications
In this paper, we propose a new approach for source-level debuggers. Going beyond their long-established ability to support sequential programming languages, we describe the functionalities a debugger should be able to provide to debug embedded and parallel dataflow-based applications. Then we demonstrate our solution to this problem with a proof-of-concept debugger targeting the dataflow framework used on an \MPSoC platform. We also explain the development challenges we faced during the implementation of this GDB-based debugger and illustrate its efficiency though a case study of a video decoder debugging session.
A three-page abstract has been published in the conference proceedings.
