Viewing Debug Data

The Wing IDE debugger provides several ways in which to look at your debug program's data:

  • By inspecting locals and globals using the Stack Data tool. This area displays values for the currently selected stack frame.
  • By browsing values in all loaded modules (as determined by sys.modules), using the Modules tool.
  • By watching specific values from either of the above views (right click on values to add them to the Watch tool)
  • By typing expressions in the Watch tool.
Values Fetched on Demand

The variable data displayed by Wing is fetched from the debug server on the fly as you navigate. Because of this, you may experience a brief delay when a change in an expansion or stack frame results in a large data transfer.

For the same reason, leaving large amounts of debug data visible on screen may slow down stepping through code.
