Debugging library for PHP

Xdebug is a debugging library for PHP implemented as a Zend extension. It provides stack traces, function traces, advanced variable display functions, test coverage checks, and performance-testing functions in one package. Functions can be inserted directly into PHP source code or xdebug can be controlled from Eclipse's PHP Development tools or from the Netbeans IDE. Various debugging output formats are supported, including HTML output. Both command-line and web applications can be debugged.


There is a tutorial at Joomla's Xdebug tutorial that explains how to set up Xdebug with Eclipse. Documentation (including an API reference) is available from the Xdebug website too, but it did not appear to be freely redistributable, which is why I included the above link.
