hat-anim - animate the reduction of an expression  


hat-anim prog[.hat] num  


hat-anim is an interactive tool for exploring the forward reduction of a given Haskell program prog supplied as its first argument. The second argument num is an index into the Hat trace file, telling it where to begin. Since you are unlikely to find a good starting point by guessing a random number, we recommend you start hat-anim from within one of the other hat tools, first choosing the relevant expression, then issuing the :anim command. Exploration proceeds forwards, starting with the given expression, and at each step (press the space bar) it shows the next reduction.



The following multi-letter commands are available. They each begin with a colon, bringing a visible command-line to the bottom of the screen. A command can be abbreviated to its shortest non-ambiguous prefix.
Exit the interactive tool.
:help [cmd]
Shows help text giving an overview of the commands available, or if a command name cmd is given, shows more detailed help about that command.
:set [flag]
With no argument, shows all current mode settings. Given an argument, it changes that mode and reports the new setting. The flag argument is one of:
uneval [on|off]
show unevaluated expressions in full (default off)
strSugar [on|off]
sugar character strings (default on)
listSugar [on|off]
sugar lists (default on)
qualified [on|off]
show all identifiers qualified (default off)
equations [on|off]
show rhs of equations (default off)
srcrefs [on|off]
show source reference of currently selected expression in the top bar (default on)
cutoff n
cut-off depth for deeply nested exprs (default 10)
Short-cut to increase the cutoff depth by <n> (default 1)
Short-cut to decrease the cutoff depth by <n> (default 1)

Shows (in a separate window) the source code for the application usage currently highlighted.
Shows (in a separate window) the source code for the function definition currently highlighted.
Start the hat-detect browser in a new window, beginning with the currently selected expression.
Start another hat-trail browser in a new window, beginning with the currently selected expression.
:observe [query]
With no argument, an interactive hat-observe window is started with the function part of the currently selected expression used as the initial query. Given a query argument, the new window starts with a search for the given expression pattern before giving an interactive prompt.

After resizing a window, use this command to inform the tool to detect the change in size, so that pretty-printing can fit the screen.
