Welcome to the WIDE Steps recorder Homepage

Here you can download a version of WIDE ('The While IDE'), which includes the following enhancements to the debugger, over the original version (note: features available in debug mode only):

  1. Stepping back to a previous command by pressing Ctrl + F10 or the appropriate button.
  2. (partial) Infinite loop detection: While debugging, infinite loops are either flagged as runtime errors or as memory allocation faults.

The original WIDE software was developed as a student final project (workshop) by Eyal Katz from the Academic College of Tel Aviv Yaffo, Under the supervision of Tal Hassner.
