    • logger To move irregularly, as a wheel that is loose on its axle.
    • n logger A machine for gathering freshly cut logs and loading them upon railroad fiat-cars. It consists of two derricks having A-frame booms, the larger and taller, called the hauling-boom, being fixed to the machine, and the smaller, called the loading-boom, standing under it upon a sluing-table. The machine, with its two engines, rests upon a base which is as long as a flat-car and as wide as the whole length of a railroad-tie. Placed upon a flat-car, it can be taken to the logging-camp, where the logs lie upon the ground on each side of the way anywhere within a thousand feet of the track. It is then jacked up and the car removed. Guy-lines are run out on each side of the track to hold the hauling-boom in place, and lines are run out on each side and the logs are hauled over the ground to the track, ready to be lifted and loaded upon fiat-cars by the loading-boom, empty cars being added to the train by running them under the loader.

In science:

The second step of the transformation is the addition of logger calls between goals of the code; these calls reify incrementing operations on counters: log(l) ≡ {counter(l) := counter(l) + 1}.
A Test Automation Framework for Mercury
When logger calls are inserted at the beginning of a disjunct, a switch will therefore be considered as a regular disjunction.
A Test Automation Framework for Mercury
On the right side, there is the “naively” instrumented version with the logger calls; this instrumented code would cause the program to fail at compiling if it is used in a (semi-) deterministic predicate.
A Test Automation Framework for Mercury
The solution we developed is to replace, in a disjunct, logger calls before each unification at the beginning of a disjunct by a single logger predicate call after the unifications – just before the first predicate call occurring in the disjunct.
A Test Automation Framework for Mercury
This single logger call should update all the counters in order to reflect success or failure of all the preceding disjuncts.
A Test Automation Framework for Mercury
Unfortunately, this solution has a drawback: if one of the unifications preceding the logger call fails during execution, it is not possible to know which one it was (since no counter was placed between them) and then the coverage information is incomplete.
A Test Automation Framework for Mercury
After placing the line for the test, the computer is then activated with the data collection software program, Logger Pro, which is used to calculate the force in newton’s versus time in seconds.
