Debugger Break Points
Breakpoints allow you to execute all statements up until the selected one rather than stepping through every statement.
If no breakpoint is placed in the program, execution continues indefinitely (or until an end or halt instruction is reached).
Use the Go command (Green light or Debug-Go) to execute all instructions until a breakpoint is reached. When running at speed, variable values shown in the debugger are not updated until the program reaches the breakpoint. This is useful when code must be executed at full speed to perform time critical functions. It is also useful for executing sections of code that has previously been debugged.
