Would you like to monitor your program's execution?  Annoyed at having
to insert, remove, enable or disable print statements?  Want to build
auxilliary data structures to track those in your program?

We are pleased to announce MzTake, a language to monitor and debug PLT
Scheme programs both interactively and via scripts.  MzTake scripts
are written in the FrTime language.  FrTime offers powerful event
abstractions that, in MzTake, turn their sights on program events.

MzTake is available from


Type "mztake" in Help Desk after installing the software (and
re-starting DrScheme) for documentation.  The distribution includes
several demo programs to help you get started.

We would love to receive feedback on MzTake on this list.

Enjoy!  Remember, if you make a mistake, it's time to use MzTake!
