------------ talks about a "phpdbg_break()" PHP function, which however has been renamed to "phpdbg_break_next()" in PHP-7 (

This is really confusing if you're new to phpdbg, because you're of course greeted with "Call to undefined function".

(Also, there seem to be no docs for all the other userland functions.)

The docs on <> have to be considered
obsolete.  We're in the process of integrating phpdbg
documentation into the PHP manual[1] (contributions are welcome!),
where at least basic documentation of the phpdbg functions is
already available.

I suppose most users are more interested on how to use phpdbg
interactively instead of programmatically, and these still find
more relevant information in the original docs.  Therefore I
suggest to keep the old link until bug #67165 will be resolved.
