Hi Hani,

I’m working with an iMac and the debuger for R 4.1 doesn’t work, the command R -d lldb only works in R release 3.6.3 and previous

https://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/RMacOSX-FAQ.html#I-cannot-attach-debugger-to-R <https://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/RMacOSX-FAQ.html#I-cannot-attach-debugger-to-R>

in section 10.17 there is a possible solution but I have not tried it 

Kind regards,
