Since you have used the Microsoft compiler, using the Visual Studio
debugger is the correct way.
However, unless you are in the C code, I would use the hyper console
interactively to debug your tcl code.

You managed to get it up and running compiling with gcc? Then, use gdb.

If you used Visual Studio, I believe you need to set CFLAGS to "-Z7" or
some such when configuring. If you used gcc, "-g".

Well, there isn't much.
