In the watch list window you may enter expressions that are evaluated throughout the programs flow. To add a watch, right click the window and enter the expression. You can also change a value of an expression, by clicking once on the value, and typing the new value. For example if your programs uses the a hash named %h you may enter "%h" to see how it changes while your program is working. Actually you may enter any expression, not only variables.

 

While debugging, changing a value in the "value" column, will also change it in the program's flow.

 

Note that the expressions are only evaluated if the nodes that hold them are expanded. If you are debugging via a remote connection, and tracing each line is slow, then you may need to collapse some uneeded nodes for faster evaluation.

 

icon_idea You can change the default set of watches by modifying the file "Default Watches.txt"
