@theamazingplant Hi, For your first question:- What is a debugger > "Debug" redirects here. For other uses, see Debug (disambiguation)). In computer programming and software development, debugging is the process of finding and resolving bugs (defects or problems that prevent correct operation) within computer programs, software, or systems. > Material used from Wikipedia For your second question:- and how do I use it? Well, In Repl.it the built-in option is going little glitchy these days. S2 years ago

Hello @theamazingplant , A debugger is something you use when you have errors in your code. It basically optimizes the file for better finding errors and fixing them. If you are just starting programming, you do not really need to use them.2 years ago
