Debugging and the execution path

Question for Variable Watching folks:

Why do we want a list of watched variables?

I ask this because I only want to see them if their value changes.

What if any value that changes is hilited?

That approach would be far more economical (processing time, and real  
estate) AND I think it gives the desired effect--you get to watch any  
variable whose value changes after the execution of a line of code.

But maybe I'm missing something. Before you answer that, read the  
next paragraph, please.

NOTE for Constellation Users: If you would like to see the approach  
to variable watching that I just mentioned, let me know and I'll  
email you a non-released version of Constellation that has a free- 
standing (non embedded) version of this variable watcher.

Best,

Jerry Daniels
