You can use Xdebug[1], it has at least a command-line client, though  
it would require entering the commands manually. I have an xdebug plug- 
in for TextMate but it is unfinished, and with TM 2 in the pipeline  
(with a public API for stuff like this) I most likely won’t be working  
on it until TM2 release.

Personally I tend to use echo/var_dump/die/debug_print_backtrace for  
debugging. Having xdebug installed is very handy even if you don’t use  
the debugger as it gives nice backtraces.
