Software development in networked real-time multi-microprocessor control systems is made difficult by the real-time constraints and parallel processing inherent in such systems. Software development in general, and debugging, in particular, of networked real-time multi-microprocessor systems is discussed. A tool that is a part of a debugger for such a system is described. The tool runs on a workstation with a passive user-interface and provides high-level access to the control software. The commands supported by the tool are analyzed. The software architecture of the tool is documented using data flow diagrams, a dictionary, file formats and pseudo-code.
