What does the binary julia-debug do that julia does not? I assume it is built with debugging options on. Is there a way it can benefit someone programming in Julia or is it mainly for those who are developing for the Julia language itself?


just for developing Julia itself. It allows to debug the C/C++ part of the Julia source code.


OK great. I really appreciate the quick answer!


It also allows better debugging of non-C/C++ part but shouldn’t be needed for most package debugging.
