Did you write your own debugger(s) for the editor or do you know of a way
to tie into debug.rb?
In the free edition we have a debugger comprising some Ruby and some C#.
Ruby does the evaluation; C# does the Visual Studio stuff (setting and
displaying breakpoints; drag-and-drop watch variables; an integrated
evaluation console; trace-into/over; autos, locals, run-to, call stack
etc.). It’s a pretty decent debugger, I think (then again, I’m biased!),
which lets you debug both Ruby and Rails applications. But, even though
people have told us they find it fast enough, personally, I am still
dissatisfied with the speed (put simply, it’s not as fast as Microsoft’s
or C++ debugger) which is why we decided to create a completeley new
debugger for the commercial release of Ruby In Steel.
The debugger in the commercial edition is dramatically faster and much
powerful (we are already using it internally but we still have some work
do before it goes out to our beta testers). I’m afraid that we don’t
reveal too much regarding the implementation details of the commercial
