I make oddly constructed scripts, so when something doesn't work, I spend more time trying to find the error than fixing it. A debugger to step through each part of the script would be extensively useful.

knowing how your code flows + the almighty /echo command is about all the debugging you need.

Writing complex code does not necessary equal good code smile

Code:
//var %x = 119 104 121 32 110 111 116 63 | var %i = 1 | while ($gettok(%x,%i,32)) { bset &t $calc($bvar(&t,0) + 1) $gettok(%x,%i,32) | inc %i } | echo -a $bvar(&t,1-).text

Hum, wonder if we'll ever see one...
For my part, I'd be more than contented with extended find- and syntax highlighting options of the scripts editor (had not to match with apps like notepad++ or regexbuddy, just something light smile ) ... I'm unsure whether or not this had been requested before.

With or without such a feature, the best debugging engine will always be the human brain. And in addition, there are all that help chans, boards and tutorials out there cool
(Just for convenience, some examples of helpful links: "find the bug" "common pitfalls" "syntax tutorial" "evaluation brackets" "debugging" )

Yes, I use echo a lot, and it is extremely helpful, I was just thinking that a debugger would be quicker, and possibly more effective than /echo -a in finding certain errors.

Finding your own errors helps you learn from your mistakes.
