Hi Paolo,

I got to wondering how you are going to debug the sockets/SMTP fault that I posted just now...

This comes in the context of me writing a larger script than normal and I've been wondering for some time, what is best practice for GST development.

I've been breaking a task into Classes and then write a test method or two to exercise the class. Then I string them together on the command line or when completed inside a file. Divide and Conquer!
I use
 - vi and Transcript output. The inspect and printNl methods in particular.
- gst-blox is also useful though writing to an image other than the default image doesn't seem to work which limits its usefulness as I like to save multiple images in case of a crash and to be able to go back if a solution isn't working.

What tools do you use, and in particular how would you go about debugging sockets?

Also, a quick example of how to use Debug would be really appreciated.

I understand you're busy today, so a post next week is sweet as.
