Globals List

The Globals List contains a list of the global variables of the target application.

This list has one list-specific operation: Trace Variable creates a new toplevel window that will contain set statements reflecting writes to the variable. (The trace will contain the last 50 set's by default, the number can be set through the *Variable_trace.savelines option.) Trace Variable handles both scalars and arrays.

For an interesting example of how this works, try the following:

You will now be tracking the tkPriv array.

The default list of patterns for the list filter is:

And is read from the option *Globals_list.patterns.
