Programming in a multiprocessing environment creates additional complexity issues above those encountered in a uniprocessing model. Animation of the underlying software data structures has been shown to help in management of such issues in uniprocessing environments. Animation tools for multiprocessing environments should also be of assistance to software engineers constructing parallel processing software systems. MPA is an environment that supports creation ofanimations that support multiprocessing applications in the Smalltalk programming environment.
