This displays information about the current stack frame. In the case of a call frame corresponding to a compiled function the names and values of the function's arguments are shown. For an interpreted function the names and values of local variables are also given. If the value of an argument is not known (perhaps because the code has been compiled for speed rather than other considerations), then it is printed as the keyword
:l [ m | var-name | var-name-substring ]
By default this prints a list of the values of all the local variables in the current frame. If the command is followed by a number then it prints the value of the
'th local variables (counting from 0, in the order shown by the
command). If it is followed by a variable name
then it prints the value of that variable (note that the same effect can be achieved by just entering the name of the variable into the Listener). If it is followed by a string
then it prints the value of the first variable whose name contains
In all cases,
is set to the printed value.
This reprints the message which was displayed upon entry to the current level of the debugger. This is typically an error message and includes several continuation options.
:cc &optional var
This returns the current condition object which caused entry to this level of the debugger. If an optional var is supplied then this must be a symbol, whose symbol-value is set to the value of the condition object.
This allows you to edit the function associated with the current frame. If you are using TAGS, you are prompted for a TAGS file.
:all &optional flag
This option enables you to set the debugger option to show all frames (if
), or back to the default (if
). By default,
This returns the lambda expression for an anonymous interpreted frame. If the expression is not known, then it is printed as the keyword
:redo &optional command-identifier
This option repeats a previous command. The command-identifier is either a number in the history list or a substring of the command. This command also works in the listener, allowing you to work with Common Lisp forms easily.
:get name command-identifier
A call to
retrieves a command from the history list and places it in the variable
is the history list number of the command to be retrieved. This command also works in the listener, allowing you to work with Common Lisp forms easily.
:use new-form form-to-replace &optional command-identifier
This option replaces form-to-replace with new-form in a previous command and repeats that command. If supplied, command-identifier is the history list number of the command you want to repeat. If command-identifier is not supplied, the last command is repeated by default. This command also works in the listener, allowing you to work with Common Lisp forms easily.
:his &optional n m
This option produces a list of the command history. This command also works in the listener, allowing you to work with Common Lisp forms easily. If n is supplied it should be a positive integer: the last n commands are shown. If m is also supplied it should be a positive integer greater than n , when commands numbered n through m in the history are shown.
This command prints symbols from other packages corresponding to the symbol that was called, but could not be found, in the current package. Any such symbols are also offered as restarts when you first enter the debugger.
