Checking

At any point while you're coding, you can also get help advice from Mu without running your code: click the Check button to ask Mu to check your code for errors.

mu code check

When you have fixed an error, click Check again to see if the problem has disappeared.


Debugging

Unfortunately, not all problems with code are syntax errors (which Mu usually recognizes). Some errors in your code will be bugs, meaning your program runs fine, but it doesn't do what you want it to do.

Mu has a debugger that allows you to step through your code line by line and look at what each line is doing. Information on this is available in the “Additional Information” section.
