New Post: Header format for V8 debugger

Hi,

for the moment I haven't changed anything in ClearScript, opting to modify che node debugger instead (that would be, just removing the whitespace in the regular expression here https://github.com/nodejs/node/commit/8d82ec21308812132a71afe45c5bc517b4a43354 at line 72) - I will take time in the next couple of days to play around with the ClearScript source code and see if just modifying the V8DebugAgent.cs gets us all the way.

Regarding the engine itself, all I've done is exposing a mock of the process and global objects with just the bare minimum fields to avoid having an exception in the inspector itself. So far I was able to inspect global variables while the engine is running and perform step-by-step debugging on compiled script(s) - although so far I was not able to have the inspector react to the "debugger symbol reached" event automatically; that is still under investigation.

Since it is of interest for you, I will try and provide an out of the box solution starting from a fork of ClearScript in the next few days. Thanks!
