15.1.1 [DEBUG]

The [DEBUG] package contains subroutines and functions that are useful to program developers to debug the LUX program itself; i.e., to discover why some aspect of LUX is not reacting as advertised. These routines are generally of no interest to the user of LUX. This package is included if the --enable-debug option is given to ./configure. Besides including some routines and functions, this selection also replaces certain internal routines that deal with requests for and release of memory areas with versions that allow program developers to check for mistakes in these matters. These replacement versions are much slower than their non-debugging versions.
