Using debug clauses
Eiffel provides ways to add debug code to features to help during their debugging. You may think of it as the well-known C construct:
#ifdef MY_DEBUG_FLAG/* Debug code is here */ #endif
The corresponding construct in Eiffel is provided by the debug keyword. It is possible to wrap code inside a debug clause like this:
-- Debug code is here.
It is then possible to enable or disable debug clauses globally.
To modify the debug clauses status:
- Open the Project Settings dialog.
- In the Debug section, you can enable/disable the debug clauses.
- Click OK.
- You must recompile your project for the changes to take effect.
- Parent <Running and debugging>
