Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

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 It's probably just outdated.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
