Rather than deleting a breakpoint, watchpoint, or catchpoint, you might prefer to disable it. This makes the breakpoint inoperative as if it had been deleted, but remembers the information on the breakpoint so that you can enable it again later.
You disable and enable breakpoints, watchpoints, and catchpoints with
disable commands, optionally specifying
one or more breakpoint numbers as arguments. Use
info break to
print a list of all breakpoints, watchpoints, and catchpoints if you
do not know which numbers to use.
Disabling and enabling a breakpoint that has multiple locations affects all of its locations.
A breakpoint, watchpoint, or catchpoint can have any of several different states of enablement:
breakcommand starts out in this state.
tbreakcommand starts out in this state.
You can use the following commands to enable or disable breakpoints, watchpoints, and catchpoints:
tbreakcommand start out in this state.
Except for a breakpoint set with
tbreak (see Setting Breakpoints), breakpoints that you set are initially enabled;
subsequently, they become disabled or enabled only when you use one of
the commands above. (The command
until can set and delete a
breakpoint of its own, but it does not change the state of your other
breakpoints; see Continuing and Stepping.)
