Compiler functionality - Step Over

P: 13
I find the Step Over option to be very helpful in lots of cases.

Pressing one of the function keys makes the program step over, as you all know.

Is there a way to not have to press that function key each time but have the compiler let's say, step over every half a second or so, by itself I mean, so I am able to just watch it without having to do anything myself (assuming the program doesn't ask for input of course, if it does I will have to provide input at that time of course)? I cannot seem to find that option. Talking about Borland C++ Builder by the way.

The compiler and linker are finished when they convert your source file(s) into an executable image file. It is your debugger that allows you to run your executable image with various fancy options such as 'step over'.

That said, I'm afraid I'm not familiar with Borland C++ Builder, so I can't help.

I have seen 1 or 2 debuggers with that facility (called Animate) but most of them do not have it. 'fraid you will have to keep pushing that button, or set your break points intelligently (assuming your platform supports more than 1 break point).
