As a student types in a line of code they will see how that
line impacts old data and introduces new data.
This can now be done manually on a blackboard but is slow and tedious.
Here are two simple spreadsheets that show how it
might look for a student to step through their code:
If anyone knows another language (assembler, forth, C, J, ...) which
