SAL Home PROGRAM Tools & Utilities


Tuba is a debugger for Tcl/Tk/Itcl programs. The goal of Tuba is to provide a debugging environment similar to traditional source level debuggers for other languages. Here are some of the currently supported features of Tuba:

  • Able to debug any Tcl/Tk 8.0 based interpreter
  • Source code viewing; you see the source as you step through it
  • Common debugging operations such as continue, step, step over
  • Set breakpoints on specific lines or specific proc entries
  • View variables, with the option to set a watchpoint, a breakpoint that is triggered when the variable is modified
  • Can intercept errors as they occur and look at the stack or variables in the context of the error.
