in thread I usually debug via...

it is a thing that Vim can not do, but emacsers easily do; am I right?

No. Vim can embed Perl, Python and Ruby. You can do anything with Vim that you can do with Emacs.

    Actually I know that vim can embed perl. More to that, I, personally, write a number of vim scripts with perl, and found this technology extremely powerfull.

    To say, I saw how someone implements in VIM script a bubble-sort, to save people from feeding lines to 'sort' external program (it is not always available).
    Needless to say, this is just one line in Perl.
    I do SGML stuff using Perl from inside VIM scripts, among other things.

    But VIM probably do not allow step-by-step debugging like Emacs, due to its intention to be compact and not part of OS.

    I saw somewhere that "emacs is a good OS but lacks editing capabilities"

      But VIM probably do not allow step-by-step debugging like Emacs, due to its intention to be compact and not part of OS.

      Why do you keep saying that? What makes you think you can't control external processes such as a debugger with Perl? Is it a problem sending the process commands? Maybe you don't think its output can be parsed? Or is it something else?

      Makeshifts last the longest.

        I saw screenshots about emacs doing that but did not saw same for vim.

        I probably did not searched good enough, but it seems to me that VIM developers do not aim such purposes.

        I know implementing debugger is possible, as vim indeed embeds perl and ruby and all that, but I do suspect it is not done, until not convinced otherwise.
