Like the title, is it possible debug MQL4 code in backtest mode?

Sometimes I need to test particular cases and I have no time to wait on real time. What I wish is a debugger to test step by step a code under particular conditions (i.e. when a varaible value is.. or when the time is >= ...).

It would be interesting, but it's not possible for now.

You have to use to "old" way, using print statement or similar thing.

Please make this wish at the service, as I did it.

The more this is asked the earlier it might be realized!
