Hi list

this is incredibly simple, but I just wanted to know what you think about it.

I really often write the following code

puts <whatever> if $DEBUG

I guess you all do that to some extent, James just talked a newbie
into it recently ;)

The first programmer's virtue of course makes me do some things like
def debug *args, &blk
   return unless $DEBUG
  <do something incredibly smart with the args ;)>
end
and sometimes on some of my machines I will do something like

require 'ilmig/tools/debug'

I feel that this might be so common place that a Kernel::debug or
whatever other suitable name might be a good idea.

I am listening .... ;)

Cheers
Robert
