Debug console question

I have asked in the past what the purpose of the debug console window it, and have gotten the answer "it is for displaying the debugger console".

 

Since the console window is the default tab on the debug pane, I am assuming it provides useful functions. But I have never seen anything in it; nor does it allow entry. So I am asking what is it purpose and how is it used.

 

I would hope someone can give an answer that either points me to the documentation, or gives a 1-2-3 on how it is used.

Re: Debug console question

Is it about PHP debugger, or Javascript one? as the JavaScript debugger console supports user input

From http://www.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/webhelp/debug-tool-window.html

Console, that displays system information and error messages, and the console input and output of your application

 

<?php
echo "No way: ";
echo "bla bla";

Re: Debug console question

What kind of script do you debug: CLI or web page?

 

Console is for CLI mode as web page goes thorough your web server into your browser and not console.
