12.1 Description of the debugger

The debugger tool has only one view, and is shown in Figure 12.1 below.

Figure 12.1 Debugger tool

The debugger tool has three areas, and a row of buttons at the bottom. These are described below. In addition, the debugger has an associated echo area. If you invoke the debugger tool by clicking Debug in a notifier window, the tool also contains a listener pane. This provides you with a useful way of evaluating Common Lisp forms interactively in the context of the bug.
