Iroh enables developers to record code flow in real time. It also can intercept runtime information and manipulate program behavior on the fly. Runtime values such as parameters or variables can be captured while code is running. “You can, for example, collect type information and even manipulate the running program because of the access to all runtime data,” developer Felix Maier said.
Available on GitHub, Iroh patches code to record what is happening without changing the original program. Developers can add listeners and then track activity. Iroh also keeps track of the call stack, for viewing code flow, but cannot record what is happening inside native calls, external functions, or unpatched functions.
