If you are familiar with C compilers, DCU's (Delphi Compiled Units) are more or
less .obj files in C. Using "Debug DCUs" will simply allow you to trace into
code that you would not normally be able to when compiled normally (because
there are no debug symbols to help).

I think your best friend would be the stack tracer.
