First use of debugger weird

Hi,

I just wrote a toy program:
K:_Projects\Ruby_Ruby_Techniques\Debugging\Test2.rb

I invoked the debugger with:
ruby -rdebug K:/_Projects/Ruby/_Ruby_Techniques/Debugging/Test2.rb

I got 5 lines (counting blank lines)
Debug.rb
Emacs support available.

K:/_Utilities/ruby186-26_rc2/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/ubygems.rb:
10:require ‘rubygems’
(rdb:1)

I gave the command “list 5” and got:
(rdb:1) list 5
[0, 9] in K:/_Utilities/ruby186-26_rc2/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/
ubygems.rb

Apparently, it gave me the first lines of debug.rb rather than the
first lines of the program I’m trying to process with the debugger:
Test2.rb.

I used
https://www6.software.ibm.com/developerworks/education/os-distruby/section3.html
as a guide, and it suggested that the debugging would start with the
subject program.

What am I doing wrong? I’m running ruby186-26_rc2 over WinXP-Pro/SP2.

Thanks in Advance,
Richard

Apparently, there’s little or no interest in the Ruby debugger.

Happily, I found the rdebug plug-in. It works the way I expected.

Hi Matz,

No apology necessary!! You’ve made a huge contribution to the
software-developer community. Thank you very much for all the work
you done on our behalf.

Best wishes,
Richard
