Re: Introducing htconsole comment 000

There are two ways to handle an infinite loop.. you can set a trace func that checks some variable to see if it should raise an exception or not, or you can hack into some semi-private C API which lets you send an exception to another thread. The former is probably better for this.

I'll see about adding that expand all button, should be easy enough.

Keep in mind that Turing proved (before computers existed in fact) that it is impossible to accurately detect infinte loops -- it's called the 'Halting problem' FYI.
