Hola Vicente,

You need a debugger.
A practical solution to start with is to use an IDE with an integrated
debugger.
Stani's Python Editor (SPE) is a lightweight IDE with pdb integrated
(with style checker also).
It is a very good ide for learning (simple and not cluttered) but also
for medium size
applications (it is very well designed).
