This paper describes a debugging system which has been developed on a combined system of a minicomputer and a microprocessor that is microprogrammable. It aims at effective debugging of the errors that are detected during the execution of a program written in a low-level language. The multiprocessor organization, adoption of firmware monitor and special hardwares yield such advantageous features as bilateral tracing, procedure extraction, eight kinds of event monitors, etc. , which are effective for debugging. Debugging is performed in an interactive mode so that the program can be tested and modified easily by various kinds of editing and debugging commands. This system has four modes, that is assemble, edit, debug, and test, which allow it to perform the debug processing consistently.
