Xdebug

This session teaches you how to detect and debug PHP scripts with the free
open source tool Xdebug, which is an extension to PHP. The first part will
quickly show how to get started with Xdebug. The second part of the session
will cover detecting problems in your scripts by showing how Xdebug provides
debugging aides in the form of stack/function traces, dumps of variables,
modified PHP functions. In the last part I will show the remote debugger
capabilities of Xdebug with different IDEs, where you can: set breakpoints on
functions, methods and file/line combinations and evaluating error messages.
On top of this you will also see how you can use Xdebug's profiler to find
bottlenecks in your applications. I will be focussing on the least known
features of Xdebug.
