If commands you type change any local, instance, or global data values, cause modules to be loaded or unloaded, set environment variables, or otherwise alter the run environment, your debug program will continue within that altered state. All visible variable display views are also updated after each line entered in the Debug Probe in order to reflect any changes caused by your commands. Since you may not notice these changes, caution is needed to avoid creating undesired side-effects in the running debug program.

Note that breakpoints are never reached as a result of entries typed into the Debug Probe, and any exceptions are reported only after the fact. This means that activity in the Debug Probe has no effect on the debug run position or stack, even though an exception location in source code may in some cases be displayed.
