Description

This ripl plugin automatically starts the debugger whenever an evaled input throws an exception. The debugger is started at the source of the exception.

Install

If on ruby 1.8, install the gem with:

gem install ripl-debug ruby-debug

If on ruby 1.9, install the gem with:

gem install ripl-debug ruby-debug19

Usage

To debug some suspect code

$ ripl debug -rsome/buggy/code

This plugin can be turned off in the console at any time with:

>> Ripl.config[:debug] = false

Limitations

This gem doesn't have ruby-debug as a dependency since ruby-debug is split across two gems (ruby-debug and ruby-debug19), dependent on ruby versions. This gem will work with either one.
