A strange Amiga debugging tool, that aims to cause badly-written programs to crash by filling memory with phrases written in hexidecimal numbers.

See also 0xC0DEDBAD, 0xDEADBEEF, 0xDEADF00D and 0xABADCAFE.

Actually, the point was more to make them crash in identifiable ways. As AmigaDOS had no memory protection, badly-written programs tended to crash anyway---but you could get a debugging dump showing the contents of your registers, so if 0xDEADBEEF showed up in a register you knew you were reading from wherever Mungwall had poked it. Enforcer was a more useful tool that provided AmigaDOS with limited memory protection.
