what is so difficult with the debbuger ?
Go to the evaluation menu and enable the debugger.
It will open a palette with "Break Selection",
"Halt", "Continue" buttons. Now use you mouse and select
the line and use the "Break at Selection" button. You should get
a red frame around  the break point line.
If you what to see the local variables use "Show stack" button.
