The PECG system merges an ECG classifier program (implemented in Prolog) with the IDTS algorithmic debugger module. If the ECG classifier cannot analyze the input, the built-in IDTS (Interactive Diagnosis, Testing and Slicing) debugger will help to find the location of the error. This paper presents a prototypical graphical user interface (GUI) of PECG and its merging with the ECG classifier program that gives the user more information about the state of the debugging process. It provides a more user-friendly environment of the system.
