That's basically it:  go through your code and insert some judicious echo or print statements to check the state of your program.

Almost nothing lets you step through everything; best you can do is  
one big mega-file that tries to test a potential problem or a metric  
ton of print statements (if your syntax is correct, but you're not  
getting the expected results).

Same problem with many dynamic languages; at least Rails is more  
helpful in development environment.
