A Step Out (continue and carry out the next return) for the debugger. Smile

I currently have to "get to" the END statement in a subroutine/function and step again to get to the next statement in the caller.

(I don't usually have alternative RETURNS in the function/subroutine body, but when I do I have to put down breakpoints on these lines as well Crying or Very sad )

This is just a "nice" suggestion. I could understand if it is very low priority.

David.

David, the current SDBG64 has StepOut.

The 32-bit SDBG does not, and I hope that it gets this feature one of these days. The feature is especially useful when there are a large number of RETURN statements at different places in a subprogram. It is a chore to set a breakpoint at every one of these RETURN statements.
