Viewing and Navigating To Code

Each time the program you are debugging stops, dbx prints the source line associated with the stop location. At each program stop, dbx resets the value of the current function to the function in which the program is stopped. Before the program starts running and when it is stopped, you can move to, or navigate through, functions and files elsewhere in the program.

This chapter describes how dbx navigates to code and locates functions and symbols. It also covers how to use commands to navigate to code or look up declarations for identifiers, types, and classes.

This chapter is organized into the following sections
