VB6 goes a step further:
That means that you can set a breakpoint. While the debugger stops you
can edit the sourcecode (to some extent) without stopping program
execution and let the interpreter run this new code without restarting
Essentially you can code inside the debugger. That gives you the
possibilty to fix a bug on the fly since on an exception the debugger
stops at the wrong line. Try different possibilities and see the result
immediatly in the given context.
That would be an nice feature for python (debugger), because this is
true interactive development.
Or is it already there and I missed it?
