Ruby Unroller: A Ruby script execution tracer

By Peter Cooper / June 9, 2007


Ruby Unroller is an exciting tool developed by Tyler Rick that generates human readable execution traces of running Ruby scripts. It can display the code currently being executed by a script in real-time, as it's actually executed. This makes it a great tool for getting familiar with, say, the darkest depths of Rails, or for debugging troublesome scripts that rely on external Ruby libraries.

    this does not work on Windows. It seems that the "termios" gem it needs is linux-specific. So don't bother to try install this (at this time) if you are on windows. Perhaps this dependency can be removed. The "colored" gem works on windows.
