It is very difficult to help you if we have no idea what language
or system you are planning to to debug.

For example, if you plan to debug MUMPS (DSM) the relevant commands

SET $ZWATCH="local variablename" to set a watchpoint
ZQUIT in the BREAK ACTION CODE will effectively 'ignore' the break point.
ZWRITE is usefule to look at the local variables.
ZDEBUG ON will enable breakpoints flagged by $ZBREAK, the BREAK command,
and the BREAK Interrupt character.

If you are using GDB and GNAT (Ada)
there are good web pages at

that can give you a start.

There is information about debugging with Code Warrior on a Macintosh

Note the embedded space in that URL.

Of course if you had said you were debugging gcc or a real time
controller, my answers would have been different.

A good hour with a search engine will probably yield more than enough
information for your needs.
