TFVIS (transitions and flow visualization) can perform the visualization of data transitions and the visualization of execution flows. The visualization of data transitions shows the flow of variable renewals in executing programs. It becomes easier to grasp the behavior in executing the programs whose behavior is unexpected by a bug. The visualization of execution flows shows an entire flow of the execution. It is useful to select the part where users want the visualization of the data transitions.
