Jacqueline provided some nice infos for mobile debugging some time ago, and this gave me some ideas. So I'll provide my basic Android debugging tools here. They are raw, buggy & unpolished, but nevertheless they have proven quite useful rather often ;-)
Put this into your stack script:

- "DF ?" (DefaultFolderstuff ...) gives you an overview for the "FolderList" options. "DF d" for instance lists your documents folder. You may use this to check the whole Android file system ;-)
- "log" is a shortcut for "answer" - "log the screenrect" = "answer the screenrect". Use this to get the value of variables and properties (log the textstyle of fld head_fld) ...
- "h" gives you a history of the commands you have used in this session, sorted alphabetically, dupes removed.
Use it to select an old command & modify it (log the textstyle^^^^^^font of fld head_fld) ...
- Feel free to add custom commands - just add a handler in the stack script.
