"Represents a thread of execution. SBProcess contains SBThread(s).
SBThreads can be referred to by their ID, which maps to the system specific thread
identifier, or by IndexID. The ID may or may not be unique depending on whether the
system reuses its thread identifiers. The IndexID is a monotonically increasing identifier
that will always uniquely reference a particular thread, and when that thread goes
away it will not be reused.
SBThread supports frame iteration. For example (from test/python_api/
from lldbutil import print_stacktrace

for thread in process:
if self.TraceOn():
ID = thread.GetThreadID()
if thread.GetStopReason() == lldb.eStopReasonBreakpoint:

LLDB currently supports process centric debugging which means when any
thread in a process stops, all other threads are stopped. The Suspend()
call here tells our process to suspend a thread and not let it run when
the other threads in a process are allowed to run. So when
SBProcess::Continue() is called, any threads that aren't suspended will
be allowed to run. If any of the SBThread functions for stepping are
called (StepOver, StepInto, StepOut, StepInstruction, RunToAddres), the
thread will now be allowed to run and these functions will simply return.
Eventually we plan to add support for thread centric debugging where
each thread is controlled individually and each thread would broadcast
its state, but we haven't implemented this yet.
Likewise the SBThread::Resume() call will again allow the thread to run
when the process is continued.

anyone has the need for them to be reference counted, please let us
