Does anyone else find the debugger a bit claustrophobic? I tend to just use prints and code inspection instead.
On the upside, I suspect that it helps encourage me (with a big stick!) to keep the code clear and easy to follow at least. :)

[stevieb]: I don't know what you mean. I write the code in C/C++ that accesses the ICs per the datasheet, wrap it for Perl, then use them. My code ensures that the functions/methods from Perl do the right thing for the chips/sensors etc
[stevieb]: At least that's what I'm working on right now. I've also been updating my automated test software Test::BrewBuild so it handles this work properly. It's not really easy meshing high level languages with low-level hardware :)
