The step command continues running the program by executing the next line of source code, and then stops.


step [ count ]
  1. count defines the number of lines to execute before stopping.


The step command allows you to "step" through your program, executing one line of source code at a time.

When a function call appears within the line of code, that function is also stepped through.

A common technique is to set a breakpoint prior to the section or function that is causing problems, run the program till it reaches the breakpoint, and then step through it line by line.

Using a count parameter will repeat the step command count times.

s is an alias for the step command.
