       breakpoint_client - a tool to connect to a Ruby/Breakpoint service


       breakpoint_client [options] [server uri]


       This  tool  lets  you  connect  to  a Ruby/Breakpoint service which was
       started via Breakpoint.activate_drb.

       The server uri defaults to druby://localhost:42531


       -c, --client-uri=uri
              Run the client on the  specified  uri.   This  can  be  used  to
              specify  the  port  that  the  client  uses  to  allow  for back
              connections  from  the  server  (default:   find  a   good   URI
              automatically).  Example: -c druby://localhost:12345

       -s, --server-uri=uri
              Connect  to  the server specified at the specified uri (default:

       -R, --retry-delay=delay
              Automatically try to reconnect to the server after delay seconds
              when  the connection failed or timed out.  A value of 0 disables
              automatical reconnecting completely (default:  10).

       -P, --[no-]permanent
              Run the breakpoint client in permanent mode.   This  means  that
              the  client will keep continue running even after the server has
              closed the connection.  Useful for example  in  Rails  (default:

       -V, --[no-]verbose
              Run  the  breakpoint  client in verbose mode.  Will produce more
              messages, for  example  between  individual  breakpoints.   This
              might  help in seeing that the breakpoint client is still alive,
              but adds quite a bit of clutter.  (default: non-verbose).

       -h, --help
              Show this help message.

       -v, --version
              Display the version information.
