[developers] How to debug SemI

Dear all, dear Stephan,

I am trying to provide a SemI for a French LTAG generator, as part of a 
baby German-French logon system.
I have used the erg.smi file as a model, changed the signature and 
property definitions according to what features and values are licit 
(pre-VPM) and compiled a list of valid predicates.

The .smi file is loaded in the script, and the second transfer phase has 
:filter t.

However, the SemI doesn't do anything. I am testing with a purposefully 
misspelled predicate, but I consistently get black, rather than magenta. 
My SemI for GG (Fr-De), by contrast works as expected.

How can one debug this kind of problem ?

Thanks in advance for any pointers.




We do have a working GenI tsdb++ client now. Thanks!
