A programming environment requires many tools, some visible to the user but others hidden. FIELD’s services provide the hidden tools. The previous chapters described the debugger back end and the cross-reference database, tools which offer their facilities to other tools in the environment only through the message server. The need for such services, however, extends beyond these tools. In this chapter we describe the other services in the current implementation of the environment. The first, formserver, provides access to configuration management and version control. The second, profseruer, provides an interface to various UNIX profiling tools. The third, monserver, is used for detailed monitoring of a program’s execution. Figure 6-1 shows the place of these tools in the overall environment.
