Foundation Logic Simulator - The simulator is ignoring a "Break" command

Description

Keywords: Foundation, Logic Simulator, break

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
I have placed multiple "Break" commands on the same signal in a script file, but only the final "Break" entered is obeyed.

For example:

The following statements are entered in a script file:

break signalA 1-0 do(assign X 0)
break signalA 0-1 do(assign Y 0)

Y is assigned to 0 when signalA transitions from 0 to 1, but X is not assigned to 0 when signalA transitions from 1 to 0; the second break overrides the first break.

Solution

This problem occurs because only one "Break" command can be placed on each signal.

The only way to work around this issue is to find different signals for each "Break" command that is to be placed in a script file.
