I don't know of any compiler that tracks register contents in such a
way that a debugger could do that.
Some CPU simulators and inline emulators (hardware) have trace back
buffers for the register contents so you can walk backwards (at least
some way) from the stop to see how the current values came to be that
way. But you still won't see any high level description of the
contents ... there will just be a trace that you can step through
along with the assembler listing.
