Debugger - Breakpoint

Frank Beister
There has to be a 'true' value to activate a BREAKPOINT. It can be any value.

It would be helpful to display this value (e.g. in the debuggers window headline), followed by the line number and and additional with number of run-throughs at this point. In large scripts or long loops this would be very helpful to keep the overview.

Even a stepwise debug mode - as object renders in 2D & 3D views, the appropriate line of script is highlighted in the GDL script editing window. User hits <space> to move to next line (or jump to subroutine) and sees updated values for all variables listed to one side for that step & so can track with great accuracy where a script fails
