The debugger 'n' command is nice: it allows to run a subroutine
(bsr/jsr/trap) and break after it has returned.

It would be useful to extend the 'n' command to have the same behaviour
after loop instructions (dbra, maybe also beq/bne/...). That would help
when tracing programs.

IIRC, Devpac MonST did that on Ctrl+A.


monst has ctr+t which handle bsr/jsr/trap/..., but not ctrl+n (according to devpac3 doc).

This could be possible to add, the logic would be similar to 'n' command : runs until pc reaches the next instruction after the current "DBcc" instruction.

So if current instruction is not bsr/jsr/trap/dbcc, run for just 1 instruction, else run until pc points just after the current branch instruction (so having 'n' handles dbcc like othe bsr/jsr/trap should not require too much code).

Now, if someone feels like adding this, don't hesitate :)
