10.1.2. Why change scope?

During execution, your application stores function calls on the call stack. If execution has stopped in a called function (because of a breakpoint, for example), then you can perform a traceback through the call stack. That is, you can change scope to a previous function. This enables you to examine any variables that are within the scope of that function.
