For debugging I dispatch a message to a LCS handler with an answer box.

I last dabbled with LCB about five years ago - but now I have a need to get
in there again.

Are there any tips that you-all can share?

In particular:

- what if anything is available for debugging LCB widgets?

- I've found a reference to a LiveCode Builder CLM module developed by James
Hale - where might I find this?

- a really basic question - if I make a change to an LCB widget, defined in
~/Documents/LiveCode/Extensions; what's the quickest route to testing it?
Can I delete and re-add the widget? Or do close+remove-from-memory the
stack, and then reopen it? Or do I need to quit and relaunch LiveCode in
order to see the change?

- any other pointers or suggestions gratefully received.
