[Gambas-user] Gambas3 Debugger: Data Breakpoint

Hi John,
I feel some of your pain, having been through some of that with a few 
migrations of VB6 and even older DOS based Basic dialects to Gambas.
We would like to do more but it is very time consuming to migrate 
especially on the larger codebase programs, and hence have a lot of VB6 
programs still running under wine.
I particularly miss the ability to set a breakpoint in the "on error" 
section(s) and then being able to drag the active line to a "resume" 
statement having altered some offending variables on the fly to carry on 
debugging in very large projects where to start over is such a pain when 
a lot of inputs are required just to get back to the same point.
Some habits die hard!
We loaded notepad++ via wine and use it alongside the Gambas IDE where 
the being able to fold code helped a lot and some of the search and 
replace functionality proved more efficient for us.
Also within Gambas Ctrl+H helped to a degree, and multiple large monitors.
Good Luck
