What does debugging ruby look like?

It’s hard to capture the look of “work in progress” when it is code.

It’s usually a fleeting moment.  One is ‘in the moment’ and when one print out and checks enough stuff to understand what’s going on, all the ‘aiding’ code is removed.

Here’s the somewhat  intimate view of actual wip with lots of prints and assertions of various kinds to see if what I expect is going actually is going on, because initially it certainly wasn’t

There’s some ugly stuff here, soon removed after capturing it here, but here it is before I make it look all pretty again.
