MobDebug is a remote debugger for the Lua programming language

$ luarocks install mobdebug

MobDebug allows you control the execution of another Lua program remotely,
set breakpoints, and inspect the current state of the program.

MobDebug is based on [RemDebug]( and
extends it in several ways:

* fixed several existing bugs;
* removed dependency on LuaFileSystem;
* added new commands: LOAD, RELOAD, OUT, STACK;
* added support for debugging wxwidgets applications;
* added ability to pause and abort running applications;
* added pretty printing and handling of multiple results in EXEC;
* added stack and local/upvalue value reporting (STACK);
* added on/off commands to turn debugging on and off (to improve performance);
* added support for coroutine debugging (see examples/README for details);
* added support for [Moai]( debugging;
* added support for Lua 5.2;
* added support for LuaJIT debugging;
* added support for cross-platform debugging (with client and server running on different platforms/filesystems);
* tested integration with [ZeroBrane Studio IDE](
