python debugging under emacs?


Is there a debugging mode in emacs that works well with python?

I tried gud, but it was giving me errors, so I thought I'd ask before I
try to get it to work: Is there an emacs mode (perhaps gud) that'll give a
view of the python source, and currenly executing line, the ability
inspect datastructures, etc.? You know, like a modern debugger? :)

I also looked at ddd, but it was cranky too, and apparently hasn't seen a
new release in years.

I'm really more of a vim person than an emacs person, but if emacs will
do what I want, I'd happily use it - for this. :)

You can try pydb (http://bashdb.sourceforge.net/pydb/), has a GUD interface
that in my experience works better than pdb...
