Hello Bill,
I'd be happy to hear your techniques to debug python programs.
Is there any interactive debugging environment by any chance ?

IDLE comes with a debugger.

Personally I use pdb. I have the following line in my .bashrc:
alias pdb='python /lib/python2.3/pdb.py'

And then just
pdb myprog.py -n -q 10034

I like pdb since it allows me to evaluate expression during debugging.

HTH.

Using Emacs together with pdb makes a pretty good interactive
debugging enviroment for me. If you are running on windows there are
some hoops to jump through to make this work, mail me if you need
instructions.

Hello, I've been using python for about 3 months now. Prior to that I did C++ for over 5 years. I'm wondering if my debugging techniques are too C++ oriented. E.g., it took me about 9 hrs of debugging to figure out that the second parameter to weakref.ref() was being passed as None. This is odd because the second parameter is optional, yet...

If I have some debugging code in a Python program (mostly print statements) and I want to turn it "off", two obvious methods are to (1) comment out the code (2) set a logical 'debug' variable at the beginning and use it to conditionally run the debugging code. Is there a better way? Some other languages have conditional compilation. (I...

Hello all, I would like to debug my python libraries, written in c++, with GDB (gnu debugger) I'm using the mingw compiler in a windows environment. As development environment I use eclipse with the CDT plugin. This plugin also has a nice GUI frontend for the GDB. I've already tried several setups, no setup seemed to work.

I just figured out a reasonably decent way to use pdb in SciTE for debugging Python scripts. Debugging takes place in the SciTE output window. I have only tested this with SciTE on Windows. Here are the pieces you need: 1. Create a debug.py script file (I save this in c:\usr\python\scripts): import sys from pdb import pm, set_trace

Hi, I'm fiddling around with pydb. Installation and usage are fine. What I especially like is the fact that you can attach a signal such that you drop into debugging mode on demand. But this is of limited use to me in situations where a server is written in python. According to the source, pydb's debugger class Gdb extends cmd.Cmd. It...
