Evaluate the value of a function in debug

Is there a way to evaluate the value of a function in debug (i.e.; %len(xx) or %found)?
I'm afraid not! I've noticed that STRDBG doesn't report the length of variable-length fields correctly (it reports them as fixed-length), so evaluating the %Len() function may not have worked properly anyway -- but if it did, it would certainly be very useful.

As for %Found, you can usually work that out when you see what happens as you step further through the program.
