    Log global namespace

    Hello. Using the Firebug console is there a way to log the content of the global namespace? I particularly want to recognise when something is added to it by my code.

    I could step through my whole code but I'm hoping there is an easier way.

    Andy.

    Did you take a look at the DOM tab of Firebug? It gives you everything that populates the global namespace

    Hi. Yes I am aware of this.

    I want to be able to use the page and to discover if and how something pops into the global namespace.

    Actually, I could keep the DOM tab visible and test the page. But something might pop in and out of global without me noticing

    Actually, the approach mentioned in the previous post works fine.

    I thought there was some way in Firebug to create a log of globals.. but maybe I was mistaken.

    Ta, Andy.
