    When used with either Glimmr Drawing Commands or Glimmr Canvas-Based Drawing, GGH will be able to generate Glimmr log messages. These generally identify the window and coordinates clicked, as well as the graphlink or g-element involved. As with all Glimmr log messages, logging must be enabled with the use option:

        Use Glimmr debugging.

    If we are not using these Glimmr extensions (and even if we are), we can access the same information by entering coordinate-trace mode. To do this, we just type COORDINATES at the command line (typing the command again turns coordinate-trace off again).

    Another debugging command available to us is the GRAPHLINKS command. This will provide a summary of the current state of the graphlinks table. Sample output:

        Table of Graphlink Glulx Replacement Commands (presented in reverse order)

        There are 2 entries in the table.
