    You can step top level forms with the (step (&body forms)) expression.
    Not exactly waht you had in mind.  There is also some of this
    capability built into the window debugger (but not really) and the
    trace package.  It's amazing how a machine which is so highly praised
    for it's development environment can get by with minimal source level
    debugging. This issue has been raised again and again.  Folks at
    Symbolics keep on saying that this is a favorite area they'd like to
    work on, but they have to do X, Y, and Z first.

Sorry, I dont get this --- what am I missing? Symbolics does have a
line-by-line, single step debugger. Meta-X trace, choose Step, for
example.  Either there is some meaning here that I dont get, or I have
been hallucinating from Release 4.2 through Genera 7.2.

Hoping to be enlightened,
