Sequence Breakpoints

A Sequence Breakpoint, one of the two complex breakpoints, is a collection of line, address, data, and/or event breakpoints where each breakpoint must occur in a specified order before program execution is suspended. A maximum of two sequences may be defined at any one time.

Data Breakpoint Activities

Some Example Uses

  • Examine the machine state after a specific set of events have occurred in a specific order

A sequence breakpoint lets you set multiple criteria for a breakpoint. For example: suspend program execution (i.e. break) after it has first passed line 25 ten times, then a value of 6 is written to the variable count, and finally a sleep instruction is executed.
