I didn’t get anything (besides this) posted today because I was too busy debugging PHP. Man, I need to find some better debugging tools for that language/platform. The best I can come up with is to insert “echo” statements that end up all over the page. Anyone have better ideas?
I hope I’m not permanently banned from SOB for saying so, but ASP.NET with Visual Studio addresses the web app debugger problem far better, and I can’t say that debuggers are any less required for PHP as a language. Ruby, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to need debuggers. Maybe that’s because that language and the Rails framework actually make sense.
How do you debug the server side of web applications?
