Meaning of PROGRAMMER'S SWITCH

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A button on the front of some apple macintosh computers which, when pressed, causes a command line prompt to appear. This gives access to the built-in mini-debugger, which has commands to dump memory, return to the application that was broken out, and others. A more sophisticated debugger must be installed in order to inspect breakpoints, etc.
