How to use the debug interface?

There is documentation available on the github page inside of Documentation/Debugger.

What is supported?

To check what currently is supported and what is not, you can use the help__ "name" command. If it outputs proper descriptions, the command is fully supported. If it does not, then the command is not yet implemented sadly.
