Anyone get the Arachno Ruby debugger working?

I've downloaded a trial of Arachno Ruby and like it a lot. Code
completion works exceptionally well compared to others I've tried and
it's a nice looking app. However, I can't get the debugger to work.
Anybody have any troubleshooting suggestions?

Here's my setup...

Arachno Ruby 0.7.9
Ruby version downloaded from Arachno Ruby website (Scriptolutions
Windows 1-click installer)
Windows XP Pro

Steps I've tried:

Created a project with some code I'd previously written. Set a
breakpoint. Started the debugger. Execution ran past the breakpoint
without stopping.

Arachno Ruby works with an alternate Ruby interpreter that enables
faster debugging.
I made sure that Arachno is working with that Ruby interpreter. After
that didn't work, I also tried latest Ruby that I downloaded from
http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/. Got the same result.

I set debugger "enable source file path mapping" and ran it again.
After that I checked and found that there is nothing listed in
"debugger file paths". No paths listed.

I tried every possible setting of "debugger quick mode" and "stop on
first source code line".

Can anyone suggest any other troubleshooting steps to try? Any other
settings to look at?

I tried posting on the Arachno forum of course, but no answer so far
so I thought I'd try here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

E

I have the same setup that you have. The problem is that the Archono
Ruby IDE's debugger is one step behind the current version of the Ruby
(should work fine with Ruby 1.8.4). My understand is that an updated
debugger will not come out until a patch is made for Ruby 1.8.6 which
fixes some critical bugs.

I also tried Archono' one-click installer but it did work quite as
well as the standard one-click installer. I reverted to the standard
one-click installer.

When I run a script a script within the IDE, I get a dialog box
stating that the advanced features of the IDE cannot be used with the
interpreter ( ruby 1.8.6) and ask whether I want to continue. I take
that this means that debugging is not available.

Thanks for the reply. So I can't get debugging to work because, well
it doesn't work. I guess you're probably right. I was hoping there was
some setting somewhere I had missed.

That's too bad. Arachno is a really good product in a lot of ways.
Maybe debugging will work in the next release.

I've had a similar experiance. At one point I was getting some support
from the author, Lothar, as in this message:

Hello Kurt,

I know about the problem, but i haven't found out why. It seems to be
some kind of rails stuff that is setting paths values that Arachno can't
handle.

I must say you have to wait until end of month. I'm making good progress
now with the new version. Currently i'm working on my own
(CGI/SCGI/Fast-CGI) capable HTTP server that will be embedded next. This
should be done next
week and then i can look at the problems - and learn more about Rails.

The debugger needs a few huge changes and there are a lot of feature
requests coming in during the last two years.

I will contact you as soon as i have something to try out.
-----------------------------------------------------------

But I did not hear back from Lothar and in the meantime, I upgraded gems
and ruby and after that I cannot even get Arachno to run webrick.

And I got no more support, and now the forums seems to be discontinued
as well. So I have given up and my trial license expired.

But I really liked the product, especially as it was very fast to open,
and the debugger worked very nicely - when it worked.

Last week, I installed NetBeans and managed to get their fast GUI
debugger working. Pretty much worked as per the documentation. The
IDE is a huge piece of software however, so I preferred Arachno due to
being lighter weight.

Anyone out there know how to get Arachno Ruby to work properly?

Kurt
