When debugging PHP with Geben and xdebug, how do you jump to the currently paused line (The line with a => mark in the margin) from any buffer.

1 Answer 1


w calls geben-where:

geben-where is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `geben.el'.


Move to the current breaking point.

It is also bound to C-cC-l which, from the comments, may be consistent with gud behaviour and bindings.

  • Thanks, do you know if there are any tutorials on Geben anywhere, it's a big package and I'm having trouble figuring out several issues

  • Not that I know of, sorry. This site is a good place to ask those questions, though.

  • github.com/ahungry/geben has useful information of course, if by some chance you hadn't already seen that.
