I'm trying to understand some CodeIgniter code that has landed my lap and I'm a bit frustrated by not being able to echo out variables for troubleshooting. That is, echoes in the controller classes don't seem to work, so I can't see what variables are being handled. Admittedly I'm new to CodeIgniter and haven't gone though the entire manual yet (though I did look for a troubleshooting section and didn't find one). I ordered a couple of Amazon books tonight, but they're no help until they get here.
I wonder if someone out there might have some CodeIgniter experience and be able to say a few words about how you troubleshoot CodeIgniter projects. The framework seems well thought out so I have to believe there's some help built in that I just don't know about.
Thanks for any info.
