Hi Sam,

There is not currently any means of loading up a script into a "session" and setting arbitrary breakpoints before firing off the script to run. Interactive is about the closest that gets.

> Thanks Adam -- I do use the exit statement to stop a script, but as soon as you exit, unless I misunderstand, you are no longer in the workspace environment and the temporary variables are no longer available to work with. I can use print commands in the script before exit, but is more cumbersome than examining variables in a workspace of a halted script. For example it might occur to me after examining a variable that I printed, that I should look at a couple of other variables that I did not explicitly print.
