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.
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.
