@shatterblast, @no_akira, I'm glad you like the IDE. You are right: the watch window is only updated when the app is suspended in the debugger (the same also applies to the stack window). Since the debugger works over TCP, it would be very slow to update the expressions dynamically after each command (and the engine doesn't know if any values have changed until they are evaluated).shatterblast wrote:Yeah, I couldn't figure it out either. It requires entering values, which I suppose works for debugging purposes. I just assume it's an incomplete feature unfortunately. The version is still 0.361. I see updates for the software about once a month, if not more. For example, the ability to run a main.lua file from an Ubuntu Linux window is recent from about 6 months ago.no_akira wrote: Q: Watch window doesn't displayed values whilst code is running ?
BTW, versions of ZBS starting with 0.36 are going to support more Linux distros (I used to only package for Ubuntu, but now can also support ArchLinux, Fedora, Gentoo, and others 32/64bit); although I'm not going to support distribution through package managers as this requires a newer version of wxwidgets that is not (yet) available.
I'm trying to have packaged releases at least every 6 weeks; some versions take longer (for example, 0.36 took almost 8 weeks because of wxwidgets upgrade and related cross-platform changes), but some take less (0.37 is planned to be released next week). The code is updated on almost daily basis (https://github.com/pkulchenko/ZeroBrane ... se/monthly), so there is frequently something new being added (or something existing being improved). I also have some documentation available; quick start guide gives a 5-minute overview of the IDE.
