Python comes with its own debugger module that is named pdb. This module provides an interactive source code debugger for your Python programs. You can set breakpoints, step through your code, inspect stack frames and more. We will look at the following aspects of the module:

  • How to start the debugger
  • Stepping through your code
  • Setting breakpoints

Let’s start by creating a quick piece of code to attempt debugging with. (more…)

There are under 2 days left in the book campaign! I think that’s pretty exciting. I hope you do too!

I’ve been busy writing the new Part 3 lately. I only have two more chapters to go before it’s done. My hope is that Part 3 will be done by the end of the week.

I have also come up with a fun little script that can put my book together for me. Today it dawned on me that this little program would be a good illustration for my readers about how to tackle a project and break it into more manageable pieces. So I’ll be adding a chapter or two somewhere in the book about that as some of my backers have already mentioned that they would like to know how to do this sort of thing.

Thanks for your support!
