How is the new arduino debug program used?

What new arduino?

What debug program?

in Arduino 1.5.6-r2 BETA there is a program arduino debug

Ah - I'm using 1.0.5.

thuckabee: in Arduino 1.5.6-r2 BETA there is a program arduino debug

Where is this? I can't see it.

it is in the same folder as the regular arduino program (arduino_debug) i found out that when you run this new debug program it puts out a separate windows that is the same as the status window(Compiler error ) at the bottom of the regular window

it is in the same folder as the regular arduino program (arduino_debug)

Well I downloaded the Arduino 1.5.6-r2 BETA version of the IDE yesterday and a file with that name is no where on my computer, so what you have is a bit of a mystery to me.

I looked at the release notes and it said:-

  • Windows: added arduino_debug.exe to help debugging errors when launch4j fails to start IDE

If that is the code then it is not for debugging your programs but for debuging your installation on windows machines. As I am on a Mac that was not in my download.
