\ They are meant to support a different style of debugging than the
\ tracing/stepping debuggers used in languages with long turn-around
\ times.
\ IMO, a much better (faster) way in fast-compilig languages is to add
\ printing code at well-selected places, let the program run, look at
\ the output, see where things went wrong, add more printing code, etc.,
\ until the bug is found.
\ We support fast insertion and removal of the printing code.
\ !!Warning: the default debugging actions will destroy the contents
\ of the pictured numeric output string (i.e., don't use ~~ between <#
\ and #>).
