Do you mean the implementation of DBGP's break ( ? This would also require async support, and right now, no IDEs implement that either I think.

Break definitely looks like what I'm looking for. Could you elaborate a bit about "async support"? I plan to add a feature request, but I need to know what I'm asking for.

Edit: nvm. I found it in the documentation!

Can't thank you enough for xDebug btw, it is my number 1. productivity-tool.

I have requested that Jetbrains implement this feature. Issue:

Xdebug does *not* implement async yet either though, so that has to be done first (as part of this FR).

I added a link to this issue in youtrack. I suspect that not too many people have thought of, or felt the need for such a feature, but I guess time will tell.

Still true, but I am not putting this on the list for 2.6.0-dev.

Why do we mark `supported=1` at the response of `feature_get -n supports_async`?

`supports_async` indicates the support of break command. Currently, break is not supported, it should be marked unsupported.

This is explained in the DBGp documentation:
