To break or not to break

This tip shows how to set a hard coded break-point in a program and not disturb any other users.

Ever wanted to set a hard coded break-point in a program and not 
disturb any other users?
You could write an if statement checking SY-UNAME, however there 
is a macro that does exactly that for you. Just type use BREAK 
 
   
in your code, where 
  
    is your UserID.
  
 

For example :
BREAK JOHN. 

This will do exactly the same as 

IF SY-UNAME = 'JOHN'.
  BREAK-POINT.
ENDIF.
