Debugging Python Scripts inside other processes

I embedded Python in a Windows C++ program. Now I want to debug my
embedded scripts which of course won't run in any IDE process.
Commercial IDEs like WingIDE can attach to external processes by
importing a module in the scripts. Is there a debugger capable of this
which is Free or Open Source?

What I need are the following things:
- runs in Windows
- single stepping
- variable watches
- breakpoints

Just the typical debugger stuff.

I used hapdebugger for such a purpose some time ago, but I believe it
needs a special startup python.exe.

I looked at it, but couldn't get it to work. A special python.exe won't
work for me since I only link against python24.dll, nothing else

Is there any emerging consensus on the "best" UI for toolkit. Tk never quite made it but from what I can see, both qt and wxWin are both doing fairly well in general. I'm already aware of the licensing issues surrounding qt (fwiw, I think their license fee for commercial use is eminently reasonable), so aside from that, I was wondering if there was any feedback readers could provide on the following: 1) Which plays best with Python?...

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 all, I've got an application that I'm writing that autogenerates python code which I then execute with exec(). I know that this is not the best way to run things, and I'm not 100% sure as to what I really should do. I've had a look through Programming Python and the Python Cookbook, which have given me ideas, but nothing has gelled yet, so I thought I'd put the question to the community. But first, let me be a little more detailed...

Hi All, Did somebody see the situation when the VS refuses to debug the Web Service at all? I can't catch why, the initially created Web Service can be debugged very easy but after some changes in a source code, maybe the source code becomes bigger that some hidden threshold, the debugger can't enter into this code anymore. I can use this web service, all methods but can't see in debugger what's going on. I have already catched this...

Scenario: This is about debugging server side scripts that make calls to middle-tier business DLLs. The server side scripts are legacy ASP 3.0 pages, and the DLLs are managed DLLs converted/developed with VB.NET. What I want from debugging is to be able to step into the methods in the DLLs called from ASP scripts using Visual Studio .NET. Background: For typical script debugging issues, you can read and follow the two documents on...

Hi all, need a little bit of advice on dynamically binding an embedded Python interpreter. First, the code for anyone that wants a look: http://trac.macosforge.org/projects/appscript/browser/py-osacomponent/trunk/PyOSA It's a Python OSA component for OS X. The idea is that you wrap up a scripting language interpreter as a Carbon Component Manager component (similar to writing a COM component); applications can then call the

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
