What is a break point ?

A point in a program that, when reached, triggers some special behavior useful to the process of debugging; generally, breakpoints are used to either pause program execution, and/or dump the values of some or all of the program variables. 

Breakpoints may be part of the program itself; or the programmer as part of an interactive session may set them with a debugging tool for scrutinizing the program's execution.
