going back years .. if its possible to have it behave more like 4nt v8
when one would simply inserted bdebugger /ne anywhere in the code to invoke the
debugger.

love the new ide just not happy with running it from the start of the script

have it invoke the ide/bdebugger with a specific string example "IDE_OPEN" anywhere in the code

Unfortunately that's not possible.

Here's why - the old 4NT had a debugger built into it that could be turned on & off (without losing state). The more recent debugger has TCC built into *it*. That provides much more capability for the debugger to control TCC; however it means that TCC can't turn the debugger "on" in the middle of a batch file, because (1) the debugger is a separate app (IDE.EXE), which means (2) the debugger can't get any info on the state of TCC or the batch file.
