Using Breakpoints As Bookmarks

Jesse Squires:

Any time I am exploring or getting familiar with a new codebase in Xcode, especially very large projects, I use disabled breakpoints as “bookmarks” to keep track of where I am, where I have been, and things I want to remember or need to revisit. Sometimes I even do this when debugging issues in codebases that I know well.

I'd add a lot of people aren't aware of how powerful and useful breakpoints can be if you start using their advanced options. A bunch of non-stopping, logging breakpoints are an invaluable tool in the debugging arsenal that not everyone is aware of.

I do this too in Script Debugger.
