Welcome to the zshdb wiki!

Sorry there’s not much here right now.

Here’s what we got so far…

Actually, demand for the debugger has been a bit weak, so maybe this is okay. (On the other hand, I suppose there may be this chicken-and-egg thing.)

Check sourceforge.net for the last-released tarball. Clint Adams has put together a Debian package which is now maintained by others.

There’s no manual yet for zshdb, although there’s help inside the debugger itself.

And since this debugger is a rewrite of the one for bash, you might get some inside looking at the bashdb reference manual.

There are a number of features in bashdb that should be in zshdb. As need arises they will be added. However if you really want that feature, just pull the code from bashdb and move it to zshdb. (Some adjustment due to better modularity may be desired/needed.)


Thanks to Peter Stephenson for the adding necessary support to zsh needed to get this off the ground and make debugging possible.

Thanks to Kate Ward and Stéphane Chazelas for programs used in conjunction with zshdb.
