Debugging preferences

Debugger preferences are available as part of the EiffelStudio Preferences.

The debugger section of the EiffelStudio preferences looks like this:

The EiffelStudio preference documentation contains a guide to the Debugger Preferences.

Some preferences have an effect upon the speed at which the debugger can display objects:

  • Enable/disable the debug_output display (see debug output)
  • Enable/disable the full generic type display (for example, ARRAY [INTEGER] is displayed, instead of only ARRAY)
  • To avoid infinite evaluation processing, the debugger aborts evaluation after "max evaluation duration" timeout.
