Sorry if this was double-submitted, but I think that it didn't go to the
original group on the first attempt:
I'm a newcomer to Erlang (from Python). I've had great difficulties in
using the wx-based debugger and was wondering if there is a command-line
alternative a la python's pdb?!
It seems that every time I use the default debugger, my Wish app hangs
or crashes. Even with the latest release of wxErlang (0.97.1212), I was
not even able to set a breakpoint!
The use of a good debugger to trace program execution is invaluable in
learning a new language--a pedagogical role, in addition to its normal
Any ideas of how I can improve the situation of my development
environment? Is there another command-line debugger? My platform is
MacOS X 10.6.6 with Erlang R14B... and, no, changing platforms is not an
option ;) Also, if I knew how to write a debugger at this point in
time, I would try to do so! Some guidance from a veteran could help.
