I have the same problem, need a solution


I have the same problem on windows:

C:/Ruby192/bin/pry:23: stack level too deep (SystemStackError)

C:\>gem uninstall pry-nav
Successfully uninstalled pry-nav-0.2.2


Frame number: 0/5
[1] pry(main)>


I fixed this by uninstalling the pry-nav gem


Does pry-debugger work?


Me too had to uninstall the pry-nav gem and the SystemStackError is gone.

@nixme pry-debugger works but I've used it with the rails proj only.
