Hi all,

had a look through the archives, but I can't find any mention of a debugger
being discussed. It would be terribly nice if at some stage in the future
if bb provided a built-in debugger (similar in style to perl).

I've always been frustrated that make never had a debugger (not interested
if it does now). It would be nice if bb broke from tradition and provided

Even if there was a simple one in place that just allowed you to display
all variables in a given rule/action every time it is executed (similar in
spirit to a function breakpoint) it would be a start.

If there was a home for such a beast I'm sure it would grow in features
quite rappidly. But without a starting point it is rather difficult.

Of course it just may not be possible, but thought I'd raise it.
