  • Allows to trace ALCS application programs at the source level
  • Records all macros and instructions that are traced during current sessions
  • Easily customizable
  • Intuitive to use

ALCS/GI has an intuitive and highly interactive interface, which allows the programmers to effectively debug the ALCS applications in a much simpler way. This provides you the capabilities to work with multiple windows within the same application, and makes great intuitive use of color coding to differentiate between the changes in the ECB states. This change of color feature highlights the errors, and helps us in quickly and easily debugging the problems, reducing the debugging time to a great extent.

It can be easily customized with respect to the toolbars, based on the user preference.

    I've been tracing with ALCS/GI for a long time and find it an invaluable trace tool providing much more flexibility than before. I then found the old trace tool slow, cumbersome and frustrating as I needed to recall and apply all the trace entry formats again.
