Over the years a collection of IDE components have been developed,
each with their own interface. In addition, some of these components
require each other and loading IDE components must be on demand to avoid
the IDE being part of a saved-state (see qsave_program/2).
For this reason, access to the IDE will be concentrated on a single
interface called prolog_ide/1:
This predicate ensures the IDE enabling XPCE component is loaded,
creates the XPCE class prolog_ide and sends Action to
its one and only instance

Open a graphical window indicating existing threads and their status.
