  • Hot Keys Not working while debugging

    I have been developing and expanding a PB 3.5 program for a swimming league. With historical records, there are over a thousand swimmers and my defined arrays have gotten pretty large. When working in the IDE environment, I started getting "Out of Memory" errors. I've tightened up on string arrays (reduced arrays sizes, shifted to virtual arrays, etc) and used the $STRING metastatement to be able to run in the IDE, but I am having problems debugging the program. The hot keys (F4 [No code generated for the line],F7 & F8 [the program doesn't single step]) aren't working right and the "watch" displays are having problems also.

    I'm not sure if this is a predecessor to more "Out of Memory" errors or not, but I've still got more stuff to add (and debug). So far, PBC is working fine but it is a slower process.

    I am open to suggestions, however, I was trying to avoid breaking it down into smaller programs if possible.

    Sounds like you are trying to work with all the data from within the IDE. Try working with only a few records in a duplicate database to make sure your program works with the data properly, then try it in the debugger with a full data set, instead of the IDE.
