7.5.1 The debugger control commands

The debugging behavior of the GWAM can be controlled by the variable *emu-debug*, which is normally set to nil to just run through the WAM code. If the user wishes to have WAM debugging information, this global variable may be set to t or :interactive by the RFE-command spy.

If *emu-debug* is set to :interactive, the following interactions commands may be used:

        All control commands consist of one character.

        E,e             Terminate and go to LISP.
        F,f             Generate a fail. (Sometimes this command may
                        cause trouble.)
        ?               Output this Help-Menu.
        X,x             Execute until program succeeds.
        S,s,newline     Single step execution.
        V,v             Output values before single step.
