I remember I defined breakpoints in a debugger, not in C++. The language standard for C++ defined breakpoints by any chance ?

I also remember I can put a breakpoint on a boolean expression that is not a part of the application. Are such boolean expressions behavior ? What do you mean by structure ? "{" and "}" ? The place between the lines ?

Ah, the runtime path of a program, each place in the source file could have many breakpoints on it.
Then structure is image of a program in a file or something like that.

Have I guessed it right ? Received on Wed Jun 14 2006 - 09:25:57 CEST
