Again, wrong question. A better attitude is to assert that we have to be able to understand the state of our programs. We can then ask: How do we design data structures that can be visualized? Can we invent data structures that are intended to be visualized? How do we move towards a culture where only visually-understandable data is considered sound? Where opaque data is regarded in the same way that "goto" is today?* * Forward reference: Some work that I've done in automatic visualization of ad-hoc data structures will be published later this year, in collaboration with Viewpoints Research.
