Features
--------

Why would you want to use pudb?

* Easy to use!
* Syntax Highlighting
* Offers better situational awareness than CLI-based debuggers
* Single keystroke for most commands
* Self-documenting
* Set breakpoints visually
* Easy access to a Python shell

Getting Started
---------------

To start debugging, simply insert::

from pudb import set_trace; set_trace()

into the piece of code you want to debug, or run the entire script with::

python -m pudb.run my-script.py

Getting the Development Version
-------------------------------

You may obtain the development version using the `Git <http://git-scm.org/>`_
version control tool.::

git clone http://git.tiker.net/trees/pudb.git

You may also `browse the code <http://git.tiker.net/pudb.git>`_ online.

PuDB relies on the following excellent pieces of software:

* Ian Ward's `urwid <http://excess.org/urwid>`_ console UI library
* Georg Brandl's `pygments <http://pygments.org>`_ syntax highlighter
