Abstract
Relative debugging is a technique that addresses the
problem of debugging programs developed using
evolutionary software techniques. Recent developments
allow relative debugging to be used on programs that
have been ported from serial to parallel architectures.
Such programs may change significantly in the porting
process, and this raises many issues for the debugging
process, such as how the array data and code
transformations that occur in these situations can be
modelled. Relative debugging can also be effectively used
in situations where the parallel programs themselves have
undergone evolutionary change. This paper presents the
architecture of a parallel relative debugger, and reveals a
number of novel and powerful techniques that have been
