Summary0001997: Added xdebug_connect_to_client() to attempt a debugging connect while running code

In a long running process that is processing a worker queue, the PHP job is started a long time ago, but when I start the debugger from the IDE, then I need to restart the worker script so that It realizes that there is an active debugging session.

Could it be possible to have a function "xdebug_attempt_debug_session()" or something that mimics what happens in RINIT for the step debugger?

Then I could run it inside my processing queue loop:

while ($task = $queue->nextTask()) {

Wouldn't using in combination with xdebug.start_upon_request=trigger not work for you?

Its a first step, didn't know this existed. However it would break on every loop entry of every worker, even tough the breakpoint in the IDE might not be related to any code running inside a worker at the moment. The usability would be better if it would just (re)connect to the IDE and not break.

Sorry, put the wrong one in feedback.
