Debug View

Debug View allows you to manage the debugging or running of a program in the workbench. It displays the stack frame for the suspended threads for each target you are debugging. Each thread in your program appears as a node in the tree. It displays the process for each target you are running.

If the thread is suspended, its stack frames are shown as child elements.
