Sun Studio 12: Debugging a Program With dbx

-count n-count infinity

The -count n and -count infinity modifiers have the handler count from 0 (see Using Event Counters). Each time the event occurs, the count is incremented until it reaches n. Once that happens, the handler fires and the counter is reset to zero.

Counts of all enabled handlers are reset when a program is run or rerun. More specifically, they are reset when the sync event occurs.

The count is reset when you begin debugging a new program with the debug -r command (see debug Command) or the attach -r command (see attach Command).
