Handy Xcode Debugger Commands

January 21, 2015

As originally provided by Daniel Jalkut here.  It’s nice to keep you hands on the keyboard rather than have to mouse around the debugger GUI.

  • n – step over the next line of source
  • s – step into the first line of source of a function
  • ni – step over the next instruction of assembly code
  • si – step into the first instruction of a function
  • c – continue
  • fin – continue until return from current stack frame
  • thread return or simply thread ret – return immediately from the current stack frame
