Trace File Matching

Objective: Match the statements related to trace files to their functions.
This exercise uses a Java applet to allow you to match items in the left column with the items in the right column. If you do not have Java active in your browser or are behind a firewall that does not allow Java applets, you will not be able to complete this exercise. If you do not see the applet below, click OK, I'm Done to continue with the course. You will receive full credit for this exercise.


In the left column below are several commands. The actions that they accomplish are in the right column. Click a command in the left column once, then click the action in the right column once to make a match.
When you think you have all of the items matched correctly, click the Done button and you will see whether or not you've matched the items correctly--green lines mean the match is correct, red lines mean the match is incorrect. If you didn't get the matches right the first time, click Clear to erase your matches and try again.
When you have completed the exercise, click the Submit button to see the correct answers.
