1) Starting the debugger:
python -m pdb <<script>>
2) Useful commands:
- Execute the current line, stop at the first possible occasion (either in a function that is called or on the next line in the current function).
- Continue execution until the next line in the current function is reached or it returns. (The difference between next and step is that step stops inside a called function, while next executes called functions at (nearly) full speed, only stopping at the next line in the current function.)
- p expression
- Evaluate the expression in the current context and print its value.
