Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am confused by these two Q&As.

My original search started with a Google.com (English) search of these terms: eclipse java debug move instruction pointer

Top two Q&As from the Stack:

  1. Moving the instruction pointer while debugging Java in Eclipse
  2. Step back in Eclipse debugger

Some might consider these duplicates; others not. Regardless, what bothers me is that the selected answer on #1 is misleading. No, it is not possible to move to a specific line, but the second answer explains it is possible to reset to the first executable line in a method.

Please advise.

That answer is over 3 years old. It's probably just outdated. – animuson Feb 25 '13 at 2:48
    
Edit the offending questions? Vote them down? Comment on them? AFAIU, this place is all about collecting correct answers. – vonbrand Feb 25 '13 at 3:22
