Possible to debug or log outside of MVC?

Hello Ryan,

I have a rails app that I'd like to debug or log, but I want to
determine what is going on in an adapter (db_adapter.rb).

Is this possible? And, if so, how?

I've tried breakpointer, and it says Executing ... but then nothing
happens. I also tried it with an IRB console open at the same time..
still nothing.

If your problem is ActiveRecord specific, what I would do is
writing a standalone script that requires AR, establish db connection,
create a model and do some manipulations, then debug the script
with ruby-debug for instance.

(I've just realized rubyforge's design just changed ! It was very recent
or what ?)
