8.4.1. Controls for stepping by lines of code

The following controls enable you to step by one line of code when you are viewing source code:

Step by line or instruction over functions

If the source line makes a call to a function, RealView Debugger executes the function completely before stopping, unless a breakpoint is met in the function call. Execution then depends on any breakpoint conditions and actions.

Step by line or instruction into functions

If the source line makes a function call, RealView Debugger steps into the function, unless there is no source code available for this function.


If you perform a high-level step in code for which there is no source available, RealView Debugger attempts to step up the call stack until a location is reached that has source available.
