On Count Breakpoint

Note: This topic applies to UNIX environments (remote development) only.

Enables you to set periodic breakpoints that halt execution immediately before the specified statement has been executed the specified number of times. For example, if you specify a frequency of 3, set the breakpoint and then Zoom, execution breaks the third time that the breakpoint is encountered, and every third time subsequently. The line containing the breakpoint is highlighted.

The frequency must be in the range 2 through 255 inclusive. Once the frequency has been entered, the normal Breakpoint menu appears, enabling you to set the breakpoint or to specify a breakpoint with the Do function. The number selected for the desired frequency appears on the information line.
