Is it possible to set DEBUG point within an ACTION

def index
#some stuff
breakpoint
#some more stuff
end

This will let you stop at breakpoint (with script/breakpointer) and inspect anything you want, however you cannot step through your code.

Tks Mark - I’ll try this this evening

Is the concept that this then stops the console I’m running webbrick in, after which I can issue ruby commands is it? Can I issue a CONTINUE to keep things moving after I’ve done a brief manual inspection?

Almost.

If you run ./script/breakpointer (or 'ruby script\breakpointer' on win32) while
the server is running, then when a breakpoint is hit you will be dropped into an
irb session in the console where the breakpointer is running. The server will
freeze until the breakpointer session is closed using 'exit' or Ctrl-D. You can
do all the inspection and stuff you like from that breakpoint
