Use this page to configure Python debug options.



Attach to subprocess automatically while debugging

If this checkbox is selected, CLion will automatically attach all subprocesses of the process being debugged. Thus, if the parent process has subprocesses, their breakpoints will always work.

Collect run-time types information for code insight

If this checkbox is selected, the types of function calls are preserved during debugging, and passed to the type checker.

Clear caches

Click this button to remove information about the types of arguments, collected at run time.

Gevent compatible

If this checkbox is selected, the debugger will be compatible with the Gevent-monkeypatched code.

PyQt compatible

If PyQt is installed on the interpreter, but is not imported in the application code, some import errors may occur. Unchecking this option fixes these errors.

If you have multiple PyQt backends, installed on your interpreter, you have to select the PyQt backend from the drop-down list. By default, the Auto option is enabled, which means that the backend first found will be used.
