after encountering problems with installing RedHat Linux, I had my
first encounter with pdb. There are some topics I don't know how to be
At first, I know I can change a variable simply by using
(pdb) ! var = 'foo'
But can I continue execution of a program with that changed value? Say,
var contained a key for a dictionary and the key was not found. If I
change the key to a value that I know is contained in the dictionary,
can I retry that line of code so the execution continues?
The pdb documentation says, that assignments are always done in the
current frameset. So if I have a local variable that is used in a
function and the execution is stopped in that function, how can I change
var = 'foo'
print var #(stop execution at that line)
(pdb) p var
prints the value, but if I change that value to
(pdb) var = 'bar'
is returned again?!?
Can anyone help me?
Thanks a lot in advance!
