trace line by line
Just press F8 key to step line by line
execute
Just press F5 to execute your script till the next break point
set/remove break points
Move the cursor on the line where your wnat set/remove a break point and press CTRL + F2
inspect variables value
Type the name of one or more variable(s) in the right pane separated by any space, comma or CR/LF and you will see variables values at any execution step

 

More options and a better user interface will come very soon.

Trace

New

Another brand new module allowing script tracing/debugging.

It is now possible to debug a thinBasic script just adding the following line into a script:

USES "TRACE"

If this line is present, Trace module will start and will interact with script execution allowing:

line by line execution
break point setup
variable inspection

 



Oxygen

New

A brand new module from Charles Pegge.

This module implements the possibility to generate and execute machine code on the fly coding directly a kind of macro assembler.

More info will come. For the moment see examples and module info in thinBasic community forum at:

http://community.thinbasic.com/index.php?topic=1637.0

A big plus of this module is that it comes with full FreeBasic source code. A great material for study. Thanks a lot Charles!

Source code is present in \thinBasic\SDK\ directory
