Debugger component used to debug each event in a system by printing
each event to sys.stderr or to a Logger Component instnace.


>>> from circuits import listener, Event, Component, Debugger, Manager
>>> class Foo(Component):
	...     @listener("foo")
...     def onFOO(self):
	...             print "Hello World"
>>> manager = Manager()
>>> foo = Foo()
>>> debugger = Debugger()
>>> debugger.enable()
>>> manager += foo
>>> manager += debugger
<Registered/registered (, )>
>>> manager.push(Event(1, 2, 3, a=1, b=2, c=3), "foo")
>>> manager.flush()
<Event/foo (1, 2, 3, a=1, c=3, b=2)>
Hello World

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
