I am using Debugger.jl in VS Code REPL. It seems that there is a problem of the @enter macro, as following code shows:
julia> using Debugger
julia> foo(x) = x^2
foo (generic function with 1 method)
julia> @enter foo(2)
ERROR: UndefVarError: @enter not defined
 top-level scope
 include_string(::Function, ::Module, ::String, ::String)
I am using Julia 1.5.1 and Debugger version 0.6.6
How could I avoid this error message and use Debugger in VS Code REPL?
Just omit the
using Debugger and you’ll use VSCode’s visual debugger.
If you prefer the text-based debugger then do:
This avoids the collision with
VSCodeServer.@enter (which is exported too).
Thank you Tim, perfect explanation! Help me a lot since I’ve struggled with Debugger for long time.
Is it possible to use
Debugger.@enter so that I can navigate with the gui of vs code and the variable explorer? My use case is that I would like to evaluate a several lines of code in a script with
Julia: Execute Code Block (Alt+Enter) and then just would like to debug a specific function, which arguments depend on the code evaluated ahead.
No, but you can just use the exported
@enter available in the integrated REPL instead.
@enter isn´t defined, but maybe I use the wrong REPL. However,
VSCodeServer.@enter works for me.
That’s probably because you said
using Debugger and the conflict between the two definitions of
@enter meant that neither was available. Just don’t say
Sorry, I forgot to answer. You´re right. I used
using Debugger inside the startup.jl-file
