Purpose


  Sets an IDL breakpoint to stop upon return of the current procedure

Calling Sequence


  DXFINISH [ , NLEVELS ]

Description



  DXFINISH is a convenience routine for setting IDL breakpoints.
  DXFINISH sets a breakpoint so that when the current procedure
  finishes, execution will stop. Often when debugging one wants to
  let the current procedure complete but stop at the next level.
  DXFINISH does exactly that.
  DXFINISH examines the state of the current IDL call stack,
  determines at what point the current procedure will return, and
  sets a breakpoint there. Note that the procedure in which the
  breakpoint is set must be compiled and on disk.
  By default the breakpoint is set with the ONCE keyword.

Inputs



  NLEVELS - Number of call levels up to set breakpoint. Default is
            1.

Keywords



  ONCE - if set, then the breakpoint will only occur once. Default
          value is SET, so ONCE=0 must be passed explicitly to
          disable this function.

Example



  dxfinish
  Set breakpoint in calling procedure.
