How to use a debugger for Intel® Fortran in VScode


Hello and Good day, 

Can anyone help me step by step with how to use a debugger for  Intel® Fortran in VScode? or Any debugger that is compatible with it. I used to find the answer all over the internet but I can't find the answer that I wanted. I am using Command Prompt as a platform to compile, link and run the program. When I look through the manual it says that I need to type /debug:full as a command for debugging. It appears to some vc140.pdb file. I don't know what to do with it. I also look at how to debug in VScode, which involves launh.json and node.js. But, there appear too many issues such as:

The key 'external console' is deprecated. Please use 'console' instead.

Yes, I am also finding an answer to solve this but it does not help at all. I am new in this programming world. Thus, I really need a guide on how to use the debugger in VScode or any debugger that is compatible except Microsoft Visual Studio. Thank you in advance.

Intel provides debugger support for only the Visual Studio debugger. Debugging Fortran requires understanding compiler-specific Fortran concepts in the debug symbol table, not something you will get from a generic debugger.
