debugR: a Debugging Tool for R

This tool, debugR, available here. greatly enhances the R debugging process. R's own built-in debugging tools are very limited, but debugR extends them to a rich set of commands, plus visual display of your execution of the debuggee. Those who have used GDB for C/C++ will find many similarities, but no such background is assumed. (Note: RStudio now has a built-in debugging tool, as do ESS and statet.)

(I am no longer supporting edtdbg.)

The tool needs a Linux or other Unix-family environment, e.g. Macs. It should work on Cygwin. (I may have a Windows version soon.) Python is also required.
