REPL while debugging or Interactive debugging console?

Post by jaysmith123 » 14 Mar 2020, 16:16

How can I try out a line of code while I’m debugging a script? I tried to use the “run selection” in SciTE while debugging my script but a simple MsgBox %myvariable% throws an error and says the variable doesn’t exist. However, doing a simple MsgBox Hello World works. If you have ever used PyCharm, there’s a debugging console where you can try out new code and access variables from the currently running script while you are debugging the script.

If this is possible in another IDE like AHK Studio, then I’m not opposed to using something else

I guess another way to say it is a REPL while debugging.
