25.1.4 Listener area

The Listener tab provides a Listener in which the execution steps are indicated. Commands can be entered here as an alternative to using the buttons on the Stepper toolbar.

Any form entered here is evaluated on the dynamic environment of the function being stepped.

Moreover, you can use the debugger commands such as :v , which prints the local variables in the current frame. You can use the value of a local variable simply by entering its name as shown. See the LispWorks User Guide for more details about the debugger commands.

See Listener area for more details.
