Abstract: This invention is a debugger for HPF-like languages which can be implemented on top of basically any debugger. A primary feature of the debugger is the use of backup breakpoints to generate a program status which is similar to a program status in a sequential execution of the code and the back and forth mapping between processor variables. This debugger requires some new debugging information which must be provided by the compiler. It then allows debugging from a sequential point of view.
