Re: [tlaplus] Fail to visualize my own error trace in ShiViz

I am trying the "error-trace visualization" features introduced in the new TLC version (1.6.0 of 10 July 2019),

I succeeded in visualizing error-trace.txt provided as an example in ShiViz.

However, I failed to visualize my own error-trace (see the attachment) and got the following error info:
"The parser RegExp you entered does not capture any events for the execution".
I don't quite understand the regexp and I just modify the one in the example file.

What is wrong with my error trace file?

Hi hengxin,

there are two issues:

First, the "state" and "msgs" groups of the regular _expression_ do not match linebreaks ("\n").  Just change the regex to (non-greedily) match newline chars  and terminate matching "msgs" with "}": 

^(State ){0,1}(\d*): <(?<event>(?!Initial predicate).*)>\n\/\\ Clock = (?<clock>.*)\n\/\\ pc = (.*)\n\/\\ state = ((.|\n)*?)\n\/\\ Host = (?<host>.*)\n\/\\ msgs = (?<msgs>(.|\n)*?)}$

I found that it works best to check the regular _expression_ in a regex tester such as [1] because of the limited error reporting in ShiViz.

Secondly, the "Clock" trace variable is ill-formed (quoting):

/\ Clock = {"'p1':'2'", "'p3':'2'", "'p2':'3'"}

has to be:

/\ Clock = {"p2":2, "p1":2, "p3":3}

Please share the "Clock" trace _expression_ if things don't work out.

Hope this helps
