I’ve wondered that myself.
If you’re using MRI I’d recommend using ‘ruby-debug’ gem, then it’s like

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘ruby-debug’
debugger # somewhere in your script

require ‘rdebug’ at the location where you want to start debugging.

Which rdebug is it loading (“gem which rdebug”)? My system doesn’t seem
to have that file.
When I do a
require ‘debug’
it drops me to a console, but then doesn’t seem to know how to deal with
the sourcefile right.

E:\dev\ruby\p2pwebclient\final>ruby -v long.rb
ruby 1.9.1p376 (2009-12-07 revision 26041) [i386-mingw32]
Debug.rb
Emacs support available.

long.rb:3:
(rdb:1) list
[-2, 7] in long.rb
No sourcefile available for long.rb

But maybe that’s just a windows thing.
-r

Sorry, I mixed them up: rdebug is not debug. I was talking about the
require ‘debug’ only which was good enough for me.
