DrPython debugger

P: n/a
Hello,
I've been experimenting with different Python IDEs since I started to
learn Python.
I must say that WingIDE is the best I tried, but unfortunately it's not
free and that 10 minutes use is killing me. So I decide to write my
Python programs in DrPython which was recommended by vegaseat.
DrPython is very pretty nad very customizable IDE.My question is how to
debug with DrPython if I have unexpected program behaviour?
Does DrPython support debugging at all? It's seems that it's not have
breakpoints. I usually switch to PythonWin to trace bugs, but I wonder
if there is some plugin for DrPython to allow debugging.
Do you know any?
By the way, I'm using version 3.10.13
Thanks

Good choice ;)

It isn't possible, because there no debugger (plugin) available.
There is/was a debugger planned and even written, but not released until
now, because I think, the project admin is still very busy with other
things not related to this project.

Meanwhile you could also try:
On Windows: Hap Debugger (looks neat, (like Visual C++ debugger,
but the development has ceased).
Boa Constructor: (I haven't tried it out for a long time).
Winpdb: http://sourceforge.net/projects/winpdb/
which looks *very* promising and is in active development.

Thanks for repy.
However, I found SimpleDebugger 0.5 from sourceforge.net as plugin for
drPython but I'm getting error message because DrPython cannot load
module drPythonChooser and it seems that the module is removed from
latest version of drPython. Or maybe I wasn't able to figure out how to
install it...:)

Sorry for the misinformation.
This SimpleDebugger is out of date for a longer time.

Maybe you make a bug report about this?

You might consider Mark Hammond's PythonWin. Debugger and editor in one
package.

Boa-constructor also has a good debugger/editor.
