Files may also be executed outside of the debugger. This can be done with any Python code, makefiles, and any other file that is marked as executable on disk. This is done with the Execute Current File and Execute Recent items in the Debug menu, or with Execute Selected after right-clicking on the project view.
Files executed in this way are run in a separate process and any input or output occurs within the OS Commands tool.
This is useful for triggering builds, executing utilities used in development, or even to launch a program that is normally launched outside of Wing and debugged using wingdbstub.py.
Wing can also run arbitrary command lines. See the OS Commands Tool chapter for more information on executing files or command lines from Wing.
