Debugger source-stepping

The NUnit and NUnitLite NuGet packages contain a source-indexed PDB for each binary from this repository. If you’re in the middle of a debugging session and realize you’d like to be able to step into NUnit code, set breakpoints and watch variables, follow these steps.


NUnit is Open Source software and NUnit 3 is released under the MIT license. Earlier releases used the NUnit license. Both of these licenses allow the use of NUnit in free and commercial applications and libraries without restrictions.
