Accessing Source Code from Instruments

Use stack trace symbols to locate source code you have written. Stack trace symbols are displayed in the detail view as a small square user icon with a black background. To make it easier to find symbols for your code, you can use the Display Settings area in the inspector sidebar to filter out hidden symbols and system libraries.
