Dynascope provides primitives for building directors. Directors are
programs which perform monitoring and debugging operations. Typical
such operations include controlling the execution of other programs,
sampling and modifying process data, and handling of breakpoints.

Dynascope primitives are simple to use and machine independent. They
provide directing in distributed and heterogeneous environments. Directors
and directed programs can execute on different computing platforms and
communicate over a network.

A director uses Dynascope primitives by calling directing routines. Because
these routines provide a machine independent procedural interface, directors
can be ported from one Dynascope supported computing platform to another
with no changes in their source code.

Directing primitives are classified in the following groups: process control,
process inquiries, state access, registers, breakpoints, tracing, dynamic
loading and linking, debugging information, and memory allocations.

The following platforms are supported in this release:
Nextstep 3.2 with M68K, SunOS 4.1.3 with SPARC V8 and IRIX 5.2 with R4000.
