// This file defines an experimental API for the debugging tools.
// Some of these declarations expose details of internal packages.
// (The debugger makes liberal use of exported fields of unexported types.)
// Breaking changes may occur without notice.
// Local returns the value of the i'th local variable.
// It may be nil if not yet assigned.
// Local may be called only for frames whose Callable is a *Function (a
// function defined by Starlark source code), and only while the frame
// is active; it will panic otherwise.
// This function is provided only for debugging tools.

// DebugFrame is the debugger API for a frame of the interpreter's call stack.
// Most applications have no need for this API; use CallFrame instead.
// Clients must not retain a DebugFrame nor call any of its methods once
// the current built-in call has returned or execution has resumed
// after a breakpoint as this may have unpredictable effects, including
// but not limited to retention of object that would otherwise be garbage.
type DebugFrame interface {
Callable() Callable // returns the frame's function

// DebugFrame returns the debugger interface for
// the specified frame of the interpreter's call stack.
// Frame numbering is as for Thread.CallFrame.
// This function is intended for use in debugging tools.
// Most applications should have no need for it; use CallFrame instead.
