Debugging applications

The debugger helps you find logic errors in an application. If your application compiles without errors but does not yield the results you expect, the debugger can help locate the place in your scripts where something went wrong. The debugger can:

  • Run the application until LotusScript® reaches a breakpoint or Stop statement. A breakpoint is a statement at which you want to interrupt application execution.
  • Execute one statement, then stop and give control to the debugger.

When you run an application with the debugger, the application is either running or interrupted.

When you debug an application, some IBM® software applications allow you to inspect variables and edit their values. For more information, see the product documentation.
