Debugging technique


Hi all

When debugging, I sometimes add a 'breakpoint()' to my code to examine 
various objects.

However, I often want to know how I got there, so I replace the 
'breakpoint()' with a '1/0', to force a traceback at that point. Then I 
can rerun the previous step using the extra info from the traceback.

Is there a way to combine these into one step, so that, while in the 
debugger, I can find out how I got there?
