Managing Program State

Index of All Documentation » Wing Pro Reference Manual » Debugger » Interactive Debug Console »

If commands you type change any local, instance, or global data values, cause modules to be loaded or unloaded, set environment variables, change current directory, or otherwise alter the run environment, your debug process will continue within that altered state as if those changes had been made during normal execution.

The Stack Data, Watch, and Modules tools update after each command executed in the Debug Console, in order to reflect any changes caused by those commands. Since you may not notice these changes, some caution is needed to avoid creating undesired side-effects in the running debug program. When in doubt, restart the debugger.
