Davey Shafik's Blog:
Debugging on the Command Line with xdebug
January 04, 2010 @ 09:33:12

Davey Shafik has a quick tip for anyone trying to use Xdebug from the command line and finding themselves having issues.

Thanks to some help from Derick and my co-worker Trevor, I now have a simple bash script that will let me and my team easily debug CLI scripts on our development server.

The script is two lines (really just one) that uses a combination of environment variables, PHP's command line binary and a few other standard unix commands to parse the output of the request. The script can be made executable and dropped into a place in your path to make it as simple as running "xdebug file.php" on the file.
