    Examples

    The following example shows code where a debugger statement has been inserted, to invoke a debugger (if one exists) when the function is called.

    function potentiallyBuggyCode() {
        debugger;
        // do potentially buggy stuff to examine, step through, etc.
    }

    When the debugger is invoked, execution is paused at the debugger statement. It is like a breakpoint in the script source.
