Is there any way you can connect to a running ruby process (for instance
mongrel) and ‘talk’ to it like we can do in lisp using slime ?
For instance in you may connect to a running lisp image (like a
web server) and inspect variables as they get created and destroyed. I
such a ‘back-door’(if we may call it) very powerful. I remember there
something called a breakpoint or debug built into rails. However that is
what I am actually looking at.
