Hi everyone, I’m having some trouble debugging my julia code in VS Code and it’s getting me out of my mind. It possibly is because I don’t understand quite exactly how debugging works (I’ve searched for it but didn’t get much progress in the last hours), so I decided to ask you for help.
I have been using VS Code for a while, and the past week I have been working intensely in a julia code. Running it, debugging it, changing it, etc. The thing is, yesterday, out of a sudden, the debug button (little play symbol with a bug on it) started doing nothing. It has been very stressful hours, because I was being super productive for once, so I’ll list what I have tried so far, without success:
- Debugging using F5;
- Closing the file, the folder, VS Code itself, reopening it and trying again;
- Uninstalling and reinstalling the julia extension;
- Uninstalling and reinstalling VS Code;
- Uninstalling and reinstalling Julia;
All of the above while using Linux Mint. After all that I decided to restart my computer and initialize it with Windows 10. I performed everything listed above again, without success.
I then searched the forum and found there was a way to debug I didn’t know of: I typed
Ctrl + Shift + P and searched for Julia: Debug File in New Process, which didn’t work any of the times I tried it, but at least gave me an error message:
I must say that the code runs normally when pressing the play button on the top right of the window or starting through the terminal, but nothing happens when using
Ctrl + F5.
Can anyone give me some light as to what is happening and/or what I can do to fix it? I really need to debug this code, and I really wish to not having to change IDE because of this.
I appreciate any type of answer, thanks!
