Interesting Anecdote: Today, I was with a customer trying to debug cruisecontrol.rb. He uses NetBeans (which was the GUI debugger I referred to above that was pretty nice). However, we couldn’t get the debugger to breakpoint after a couple of minutes trying, so we used ruby-debug, which worked fine. In my totally biased and unscientific experience, ruby GUI debuggers seem to have problems with code that issues system calls (backticks, system(), IO.popen, etc). ruby-debug seems to handle this stuff better.
