Okay. 

There's one other pydb command might be of interest. I mentioned the
ability to issue debugger commands by giving the commands as a string
in a command-line option, or putting the debugger commands in a file
and giving the name of a file in a command-line option.  However
*inside* pydb, one can also run a canned set of debugger commands read
in from a file. This is "source" command. Again, this is exactly
analogous the command of the same name in gdb.

Should you want to somehow build such a debugger script from an
interactive debugging session, "set history" and "set logging" might
be helpful.
