Automatically stepping over STL


When you're debugging and you step into a line of code that has an STL variable, you first have to step into the STL source code. This quickly gets tedious, but there is a way to override this:

Open the registry and edit the following key (this is for Visual Studio 2008 on 32-bit Windows XP):


or for Visual Studio 2008 on 64-bit Windows 8.1:


Create a new string value "20" (if it's not already there) and give it the value "std\:\:.*=nostepinto".


I discovered this trick from this blog post, which shows you how to do it for ATL.
