3.2.6 The debug Statement


debug {
  # Set Mailutils debugging level.
  level spec;
  # Prefix debug messages with Mailutils source locations.
  line-info bool;


The ‘debug’ statement controls the amount of additional debugging information output by Mailutils programs. The ‘level’ statement enables additional debugging information. Its argument (spec) is a Mailutils debugging specification as described in debugging.

The ‘line-info’ statement, when set to ‘true’ causes debugging messages to be prefixed with locations in Mailutils source files where they appear. Normally, only Mailutils developers need this option.
