Some tasks that have been mentioned elsewhere that would be nice to have in the debugger:

  • Make breakpoints at labels
  • Handle restart opcodes - though I'm not even sure what these opcodes are at this point (--coke)
  • Attach to a running program
  • Prior art:
  • clone the interpreter to allow people to play into the debugger and then continue the normal execution of the program
  • in PDB_hasinstruction
    • previous comment suggested this SHOULD take the line, get an instruciton, get the opcode for that instruction and check that is the correct one. (implying it doesn't now.)
    • Decide how to deal with macros in here.
