REALbasic Professional Edition is intended for serious application developers who require a full-strength development tool. REALbasic Personal Edition is intended for students and casual developers who develop applications for their own use. REAL Software does not provide technical support for Personal Edition. REALbasic Professional Edition includes a remote debugger that enables you to observe your code execution on one computer as it runs on another computer. The remote debugger enables you to write your code on Windows, for example, and test it on Linux and Macintosh. Because the remote debugger is based on the TCP/IP protocol, you can even remotely debug your application on a machine in another location, such as a customer site.
