my favorite debugging technique

Over the past few years, I've spent more time debugging Java than C++. I like things about both languages, and I don't really have a strong preference. In general, both languages work, and both languages let me say what I need to say. But when debugging Java, there is one feature from C++ I sorely miss...

Set Next Statement

I can't tell you how many hours that one technique has saved me... Now that I get to debug C++ again, every time I use it (like just a minute ago), I smile.

"Now that I get to debug C++ again"

I don't know whether to laugh or's one of the most bizarre statements I've ever read. I know it's in the context of a single debugging feature vs Java but's just so masochistic.

So when can we see that in LotusScript? :-)
