Files included in this distribution:

README		This file.
Makefile	Just enough to make the manual and distribution.
edebug.el	The reason for all this.

To install, put the .el files in some directory in your load-path and
byte-compile them.  Put the following forms in your .emacs file.

(define-key emacs-lisp-mode-map "\C-xx" 'edebug-eval-top-level-form)
(autoload 'edebug-eval-top-level-form "edebug")

If you wish to change the default edebug global command prefix, change this:
(setq edebug-global-prefix "\C-xX")

Other options, are described in the manual.
Also see cl-specs.el, and edebug-cl-read.el if they apply to you.

In previous versions of edebug, users were directed to set
`debugger' to `edebug-debug'.  This is no longer necessary
since Edebug automatically sets it whenever Edebug is active.


Send me your enhancements, ideas, bugs, or fixes.
There is an edebug mailing list if you want to keep up
with the latest developments:

You can use edebug-submit-bug-report to simplify bug reporting.
