General question about debugging script

Recommended Posts

polps

Hello,

I am a basic AutoiIT user.

I'm writing a script to read and manage very large txt files and I'm looking the best way to debug my script.

I currently use Stumpii Graphical AutoIt Debugger; it's a great tool but it seems to me that my application becomes too slow.

I like to use Scite and the "Debug to Console" feature to catch the variable value.

So I'm asking if Scite has the "pause/resume/breakpoint" features (without using the icon in the tray bar).

Alternatively, can anyone suggest me another debugger or how add this features directly in my script?

Tanks all.

Scite doesn't have the debugging capabilities of using breakpoints and such that I'm aware of (please correct me if I'm wrong) but you can add this:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Debug_Mode=y

To the top of your script and it outputs which line is running to the console so you can see which path it's taking through your script.


Dating a girl is just like writing software. Everything's going to work just fine in the testing lab (dating), but as soon as you have contract with a customer (marriage), then your program (life) is going to be facing new situations you never expected. You'll be forced to patch the code (admit you're wrong) and then the code (wife) will just end up all bloated and unmaintainable in the end.

Tanks LurchMan, this is an interesting feature which I will take into account.
