 for breakpoint
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  breakpoint
  
      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 they may be set by the programmer as part of an
     interactive session with a debugging tool for scrutinizing the
     program's execution.
