Counts for Breakpoints
A hit count can be applied
to breakpoints. When a hit count is applied to a breakpoint, the
breakpoint suspends execution of a thread the nth time it is hit, but never
again, until it is re-enabled or the hit count is changed or

hit for the nth
time, the thread that hit the breakpoint suspends. The breakpoint is
disabled until either it is re-enabled or its hit count is changed.
