13. Testing and Debugging > 13.3. The Flash ActionScript Debugger

The Flash ActionScript Debugger

Debuggers have been around in other programming environments for years, but it is a necessary tool and a welcome addition to the Flash environment. We cover the Flash debugger only briefly, as it has been covered in depth elsewhere. The Flash debugger allows you to set up interactive debugging within the Flash movie. This allows you to interact with the code as it is executing—examining variables and stepping through the lines of code one by one to help you determine where a problem might exist. The debugger can also be used with a remote movie located on a web server. The movie will be retrieved and debugged locally in the Flash Player. More information on remote debugging can be found in the Flash online Help system under Help Using Flash Testing a Movie Using the Debugger.
