Does maze support distributed processes?

Does maze support interactive mode applications?

Does maze support applications written in scripting languages?

What programming languages are supported by maze?

What threads libraries are supported by maze?

Can maze run in interactive mode, like a regular debugger?


 

Does maze support multiple threads or multiple processes?

Both. All threads created by a process running under maze are controlled by maze by default. Optionally maze also controls all new processes created with fork().



Does maze support distributed processes?

Maze currently supports multiple processes running on the same machine. We might add support for distributed computing later.

 

Does maze support interactive mode applications?

An interactive application can run under maze reading its input from a file (instead of waiting for the standard input from terminal).


Does maze support applications written in scripting languages?

Most scripting languages are run by interpreter, which compiles the scripts "on the fly". Maze cannot support an application in this mode. It works directly with binaries produced by compilers. If you can compile your application and run it in a batch mode from the command line, then maze can support it. For instance, if you have a compiled executable called "my_binary" and you can run it in a shell:

$ my_binary

then it can run under maze.

 

What programming languages are supported by maze?

Maze is language-agnostic. It interacts with the application on the instruction level. The programming language used to create your application does not matter to maze. Some diagnostic features - such as printing stack with function arguments and line numbers - are available for applications written in C/C++.

 

What threads libraries are supported by maze?

It does not matter which thread library you choose. You may even create your threads manually with clone() system call. By now maze has been tested with applications using POSIX pthreads and just::thread libraries, and direct system calls.

 

Can maze run in interactive mode, like a regular debugger?

The feature is not available yet, but we currently work on it. It will be available in the near future.
