Thank you Thiago, this is helpful information! That gives me some reason to recommend we try this out as our next step on this application.

I've been using xDebug for a while now. It can do everything you mentioned and more (e.g. profiling).
I can't tell you how to make it work with it's default client as I use Eclipse PDT as a mine. But I'm sure the extension manual can help you out.
If I were you, I'd go for xDebug. :)
Oh btw, for actual "install" it all you have to do is to load it (with zend_extension[_ts]), and add some entries in php.ini.
Follows my php.ini portion:
;;xdebug.dump.REQUEST = *
;xdebug.remote_log = c:\xDebugRemote.log

Assunto: [xdebug-general] noob question, is Xdebug installable for non-php-guru?
Hey all, I am trying to debug a php script running under IIS, some one php line stops working in a current production web application when I try to upgrade PHP from v5.2.5 to v5.2.6.  I have a lot of development experience but not a lot in PHP.  I am trying to get a debugger that will allow me to step through a script line by line, and examine variables as I step.  I am running on IIS, Windows Server 2003 (blech to both).
Does Xdebug do what I want?  Also, is the install and usage fairly straightforward?  I am currently trying DBG, I have the DBG extension running under IIS, but am finding the info on getting the client listener piece installed & using the debugger to be very sketchy, for my state of non-guru-ness.  The web site for Xdebug has not convinced me that it'll a straightforward install, and my experience with DBG has been very painful.
Thanks for any info.
