Python Debugging With pdb: Overview
Nowadays, we often take for granted the excellent debuggers built into our favorite IDEs. But how do you debug your Python code when you don’t have the luxury of using an IDE?
pdb, short for Python DeBugger, is a module for interactive source code debugging. It’s built into the Python Standard Library, so it’s always accessible to you. Because it runs in the command line, it’s especially helpful when you’re developing on remote systems.
In this course, you’ll learn how to perform the most common debugging tasks using
pdb, including setting breakpoints, stepping through code, viewing stack traces, creating watch lists, and more.
