yes, I know the "set debug x" feature.
I just wanted to mention it. Perhaps someone listening has to much spare time and is
looking for new challenging tasks :)

You're welcome. No more than you deserve!
If you would like to know if theres something that I'm missing
when working with gretl, then I can tell one thing: IMHO gretl
is lacking a script debugger.
For my thesis I'm working on GARCH option pricing models. I
estimate different GARCH models using autoregressive formulas
and then calculate option prices with a monte carlo simulation.
Nearly all of the code is written using gretl, just some parts
that need to calculations with compex numbers are implemented in
R. In R I have the simple but sufficient debug feature that
allows to step through functions and look into variables during
calculation. In gretl I can do the same only using print
statements, which makes debugging quite hard.
Admittedly this is something we haven't thought about much at this
point. To be sure, we don't have anything such as you describe
for R. We do, however, have the ability to
set debug 1
set debug 2
with effects as described in the help entry for the "set" command.
