I havn't gotten into it myself yet but the small blue dot means it is a
compiled line of code that hasn't been optimized out.

Does anyone have a legend for the glyphs in the gutter at the left margin
of the Delphi 3 IDE Editor window?

I just purchased the Standard edition which comes with no printed manuals
(of Borland's--just the SAMS tutorial book).  I searched the on-line help
and could only find reference to the existence of the glyphs, but no cross
reference to a key/legend.

Obviously, a round red dot with a check mark through it means a break point
has been set.  A green rightward pointing arrow indicates the current
execution line during debugging.

The only other glyph I've noticed is a small blue dot at the very left
after a compile when I'm editing.  I haven't figured out what that dot
means, except to suspect it indicates a line of code that is active (hasn't
been optimized out), or maybe just any line previously compiled, because my
new lines of code don't have the blue dot.

I'm wondering if there are other glyphs that I just haven't encountered
yet, and what those might mean.

Anyone have any info, or pointers to info that I might have missed?

Thanks,
Andy Cook
