  • Patent number: 7162406
    Abstract: A control program controls various operations in a simulated operator program. In particular, the control program: a) sequentially executes commands in the simulated operator program; b) displays, on a monitor, each particular command that is currently being executed; c) slows the execution of the commands to a rate where each displayed command can be viewed and recognized by an operator; d) provides control mechanisms for manually stopping the simulated operator program immediately after the displayed particular command is completely executed; e) provides control mechanisms for editing and restarting the simulated operator program at any selected command.

  • Patent number: 7039568
    Abstract: A system for testing the hardware of a digital computer includes a test terminal which stores and executes: 1) a hardware test program for the digital computer, 2) a simulated operator program for the hardware test program, and 3) a control program for the simulated operator program. The hardware test program tests the hardware in the digital computer in response to signals from a mouse and a keyboard. The simulated operator program includes commands that simulate the signals from the mouse and keyboard. The control program: a) sequentially executes the commands in the simulated operator program; b) displays, on a monitor, each particular command that is currently being executed; c) slows the execution of the commands to a rate where each displayed command can be viewed by an operator; d) enables an operator to stop, edit and restart the simulated operator program at any selected command.
