I am debugging a file scanner and I have a breakpoint set at file.readline(). I see in the file it fails at line 3211. How do I continue from breakpoint 3210 times then step through to find the bug?

You can right-click on the breakpoint, select Ignore Breakpoint, and then enter an ignore count.

However, in a lot of cases it may be easier to set a conditional breakpoint to isolate the case you want to debug. This is also done by right-clicking on the breakpoint margin, either to create a conditional breakpoint or edit an existing breakpoint's condition.
