Breaking in the Delphi debugger without a breakpoint

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/20

You can fire a debugger breakpoint using either of these two:

  • asm int 3 end which is the x86 debug interrupt
  • DebugBreak() which is the Windows API function wrapping the above interrupt

I’m not sure how accurate it is (in the past it would fail under some debuggers other than the Delphi IDE), but as of Delphi 2, there is a DebugHook variable that is non-zero when running under the Delphi debugger, so you can protect your code.

Via [WayBackI remember some time ago, Jeroen Pluijmers posted a snippet of how to place a breakpoint directly in the Delphi source without relying on the F5 key. – Alberto Paganini – Google+

Smart idea: powering a stack of Raspberry Pi using 2.1mm barrel connector splitter…

Smart idea by [WayBacktinspin/rupy: Async. HTTP & NoSQL Distr. VHost PaaS at [WayBack687474703a2f2f686f73742e727570792e73652f636c75737465722e6a7067 (480×640):

Apart from one part I found on Amazon, most parts (and more if you want to built it for instance inside a case) can be obtained from [WayBackDC : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits, see the pictures and links below.

I think [WayBackpower supply options for multiple PIs – Raspberry Pi Forums got inspired by this or vice versa.
