Re: [cdt-dev] Are catchpoints supported?

I¹m not sure catchpoints signal when the program has reached the end of
runnable statements. I¹m not sure even gdb tracks that. We terminate when
the operating system says the process has exited.

Sounds like you want some sort of new MI event to trigger the debug
session in DSF to go into a special state. Sounds like a lot of work given
our architectural problems with DSF/GDB that Volodya has brought up
recently. But we should be able to handle that.
