12.1 Description of the debugger

12.1.2 Backtrace area

The backtrace area lists the history of function calls on the debugger stack. Each item, referred to as a frame on the stack, shows a separate function call.

Selecting any frame displays any variables associated with that function in the Variables area.

Double-clicking on any frame finds and displays the source code definition for that function in the editor, prompting you for a tags file first, if necessary.

Any item selected in this area can be operated on using the commands in the Frame menu: See Section 12.7 on page 166 for details.
