Using the graphical interface of debug

Command pane

The Command pane has two parts:

The Command pane displays a transcript of the debugging session (debugger and process input and output) in the Transcript area. The Command Line is used to enter debugger commands as if you were using the command line interface.

The Transcript area displays the history of the debugging session as it affects the Command pane's window set. This includes:

You may type commands in the Command Line as if you were using the debugger's command line interface. Pressing <Return> will cause the command line to be executed. The command, and its output, will be displayed in the Transcript area. See the manual page (debug(CP)) for a description of the commands available.

Any command or block of commands may be suffixed with a '>' and a filename. This has the effect of redirecting the output of the command into the file instead of displaying the output in the Transcript area. You may also use ">> filename", which appends the output to the file, rather than replacing its current contents, if any. The graphical debugger does not, however, allow the output of a command to be piped into another UNIX System shell command.
