I had a suggestion for the next thread, a tutorial on effective use of the Stella debugger. From the basics to the more advanced features.

I think this is a good idea. And in the process, there will probably be some bug reports that can improve the debugger (although I don't know when I'll find time to actually implement the bugfixes).

As to your original question, there's a very minimal tutorial in the Stella documentation; specifically, how to cheat :) It describes how to lose a live, search for changes in RAM, trapping on address reads and writes, etc. While it only covers one use case, it still gives some useful info. But like I said above, more feedback would be great. Maybe the documentation could be extended to include tutorials and hints ...

4th.

Stella is the most important tool we have for the 2600.
