debugger

Hello List,

I've been playing with erlang a little bit and I would like to get to
know the debugger, since I tend to write buggy code.  Luckily, it
didn't take me long to write a little program which doesn't work.  So
I fired up the debugger just like it says in the users manual,
compiled my module with debug_info, and tried a Modules -> interpret.

The interpret request fails and says the module must be purged before
loading.  Ok fine.  code:purge(cothink).  Try again.  Same error!

Any ideas? I saw another posting back in february with the same
question.  Is it a bad sign that nobody answered?

thanks,

-Lyn
