winpdb, rpdb2 — platform independent Python debugger


winpdb, rpdb2 [-h, --help] [-d, --debuggee] [-a, --attach] [-o, --host] [-r, --remote]
[-e, --encrypt] [-p, --pwd] [-s, --screen] [-c, --chdir] [--debug] [[<script-name>


This manual page documents briefly the winpdb and rpdb2 commands.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does
not have a manual page.

winpdb is a GUI frontend to rpdb2, a remote debugger for python, which is capable to debug
threads- and curses-based code.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

-h --help
Print the program's help.

-d --debuggee
Start debuggee and break into it, without starting a debugger console.

-a --attach
Attach to an already started debuggee.

-o --host
Specify host for attachment.

-r --remote
Allow debuggees to accept connections from remote machines.

-e --encrypt
Force encrypted connections between debugger and debuggees.

-p --pwd
Password. This flag is available only on NT systems. On other systems the
password will be queried interactively if it is needed.

-s --screen
Use the Unix screen utility when spawning the debuggee.

-c --chdir
Change the working directory to that of the launched script.

--debug Debug prints.
