3.2 Scheme vs C

BDB is able to debug both Scheme and C code. Commands to inspect variables and code are the same for Scheme and C. The general convention adopted by BDB is to represent Scheme symbols in uppercase. This distinction is of importance because the BDB treatment is different for a Scheme expression and for a C expression. For instance, the command

break main

sets a breakpoint into a C function named main. While the command

break MAIN

sets a breakpoint into a Scheme function named main.
