System Syntax

Many debugger commands have process identifiers as their parameters.

Two vertical bars ( || ) appear before the system identifier. The system identifier can be one of the following values.

System identifierDescription


The current system


The system that caused the current exception or debug event.


All systems.


The system whose ordinal is ddd.


Systems are assigned ordinals in the order that the debugger attaches to them.

When debugging begins, the current system is the one that caused the present exception or debug event (or the one that the debugger most recently attached to). That system remains the current system until you specify a new one by using a ||s (Set Current System) command or by using the Processes and Threads window in WinDbg.
