IDE Window: Breakpoints
This page is under construction. It may contain wrong information and must be confirmed/repaired by Marc.
You must setup the debugger and start the project to debug it. Only then the breakpoints are useful.
A breakpoint can be enabled or disabled. If it is enabled, then each time the program reaches the breakpoint, the condition is checked and if results true, the program will be stopped. You can then examine the current state of variables, call stack, etc. To resume use the Run button or the menu item Run -> Run.
Shows the position of the breakpoint in the source. If the corresponding position of the source is not know, the address in the executable is shown instead.
Shows the position of the breakpoint in the source. If you edit the source, this position can change. For example, if you insert a line in front, the breakpoint will move. But this has no effect the line numbers in the debugging information of the executable. It will still contain the old numbers. So, better stop debugging (i.e. stop the program) before editing.
Normally a reached breakpoint always stops the program. You can define a condition, which is executed and the program is stopped only, if the condition is met.
Not implemented yet: Normally a breakpoint stops the program. Eventually other actions will be implemented, like enabling other breakpoints or groups.
How many times the enabled breakpoint has been reached.
Not implemented yet: Eventually you can group breakpoints. This allows to quickly enabled/disable several breakpoints at once.
