debugging swift application on macos
« on: May 16, 2021, 08:44:00 AM »
I've just installed the slickedit 2020 trial onto macos catalina. Created a simple swift application (Basically hello world) and run it. Fine works, but no matter what i do i can't get the debugger to stop... step into.. nope runs the entire program. Step to cursor, nope ignores the cursor. I see the red box indicating breakpoint appear but never stops.
This is brand spanking new installation, all i did was install slickedit, create a swift project, and press run. SlickEdit nicely said oops no compiler tools installed. I let it do that and now runs but won't debug.

I'll take a look at it next week.  Did you create a project, or just use the single file project support?
