zshdb: debugger for Z-Shell scripts

If there’s something that I was missing in Zsh compared to Bash I’d say it’s bashdb – the Bash Debugger. But thanks to Rocky Bernstein we have zshdb – the debugger for Zsh scripts! :)

The command syntax generally follows that of the GNU debugger gdb, and as zshdb just entered Debian/unstable (needs a very recent zsh-beta version) I couldn’t resist playing with it. That’s how it looks like in console mode:

And there even is an emacs mode available:
