Breakpoint limitations

Instantiations mailing list
Greetings,

I was just wondering if anybody knew of a particular limitation on the maximum number of breakpoints that could be configured in VAST at any one time. I just wrote a script to create a breakpoint that would just do a Transcript show of the method signature for all methods in all subclasses of a particular business model superclass. When I tried to file in the breakpoints, it gets an error after loading a little more than 9,500 breakpoints.

Has anybody seen this before? I'm guessing that I might be out on a limb because there are probably few people that want that many breakpoints. But, if anybody has seen it, have you found any kind of work around?

Many thanks,
Joel Zecher

I have used breakpoints for a poor man's code coverage tool. No idea how many breakpoints were involved.

You may be better off looking for the Method Wrappers project. There is one for VA Smalltalk. http://vastgoodies.com/projects/Method%20Wrappers
