;;; Commentary:
;; Introduction:
;; This is a full-blown debugger user interface to the Ruby rdebug
;; debugger shell.
;; The main features are:
;; * Window layout with dedicated windows for:
;; + Local and member variables
;; + Stack trace
;; + Display expressions
;; + Breakpoints
;; + Output
;; + Debugger Shell
;; * Source-level debugging:
;; + The current source file is shown and current line is marked.
;; + Function keys bindings for effective stepping in the source code.
;; + A "Debugger" menu for easy access to all features.
;; * A number of predefined window layouts and key bindings are
;; supplied, including binding that emulate Eclipse and NetBeans.
;; The user can easily provide their own window layout and
;; settings.
;; The default window layout looks like the following:
;; +----------------------------------------------------------------------+
;; | Toolbar |
;; +-----------------------------------+----------------------------------+
;; | Debugger shell | Variables buffer |
;; +-----------------------------------+----------------------------------+
;; | | |
;; | Source buffer | Output buffer |
;; | | |
;; +-----------------------------------+----------------------------------+
;; | Stack buffer | Breakpoints buffer |
;; +-----------------------------------+----------------------------------+
;; Installation:
;; To use this package, place the following line in an appropriate
;; init file (for example ~/.emacs):
;; (require 'rdebug)
;; History and Future:
;; The design of this debugger user interface was inspired by
;; `gdb-ui', a similar user interface to GDB.
;; Hopefully, rdebug, gdb-ui, and other emacs user interfaces could
;; join forces to create a common user-level look and feel, and a
;; battery of underlying support functions.
;; This file contains only user-customizable variables and code to
;; load the other files when needed.
;;; Code:
;; -------------------------------------------------------------------
;; Consistency checks.

(autoload 'rdebug "rdebug-core"
"Run the rdebug Ruby debugger and start the Emacs user interface.
By default, the \"standard\" user window layout looks like the following:
| Toolbar |
| Debugger shell | Variables buffer |
| | |
| Source buffer | Output buffer |
| | |
| Stack buffer | Breakpoints buffer |
The variable `rdebug-many-windows-layout-function' can be
customized so that another layout is used. In addition to a
number of predefined layouts it's possible to define a function
to perform a custom layout.
If `rdebug-many-windows' is nil, only a traditional debugger
shell and source window is opened.
The directory containing the debugged script becomes the initial
working directory and source-file directory for your debugger.
The custom variable `gud-rdebug-command-name' sets the command
and options used to invoke rdebug." t)
