Finding the value of a variable
There are several ways to obtain the value of a variable and which is best
depends on your particular situation. Here are three quick ways:
1. If you can see the variable in the source window, point the mouse at it - a
tool-tip will appear with the value. A right mouse click will open a
separate window that displays the value. The tool-tip feature can
be turned off from the Options
Window but the right mouse click will always work.
2. Look in the variables window (this can be configured to be alphabetic
from the Options Window). Once
the variable is highlighted you can open a separate window by pressing the left
3. Using the debugger command line, simply type
'PRINT ' (or just 'P ') followed by the variable and it will be
displayed in its own window. You can also display an expression. For example
'PRINT X/XRATIO' will display a window with the value of X/XRATIO. This
will update as the program is stepped.
