TRON

1. <project> The Real-Time Operating System Nucleus.

2. <language, programming, testing, tool> (TRace ON) A command used when debugging programs written in early line-numbered BASIC that contained GOTO and GOSUB statements.

When the TRON command had been executed, the program ran with a window open indicating the line number being executed at that instant.

The TROFF (an abbreviation for "TRace OFF") command turned the tracing off.
