[lldb/Command] Add --force option for `watchpoint delete` command

[lldb/Command] Add --force option for watchpoint delete command

Currently, there is no option to delete all the watchpoint without LLDB
asking for a confirmation. Besides making the watchpoint delete command
homogeneous with the breakpoint delete command, this option could also
become handy to trigger automated watchpoint deletion i.e. using
breakpoint actions.

LGTM with the inline comment(s) addressed.


Given that error is never actually populated, it might be nice to use return {} to make it clear that we're returning a default constructed instance.


I know it's not code you touched but moving this into the first if-clause would allow for an early return.

If you cannot reuse another test (see bellow), all the setup can be replaced by lldbutil.run_to_line_breakpoint or lldbutil.run_to_source_breakpoint


Can't we just add this to the end of another test without spinning up a new process?

Did you verify that the test failed before your patch? I'm asking because I don't know what m_interpreter.Confirm() does when there's no PTY connected. Does it default to no or yes?


You don't test the result of this command, so you don't actually test that deleting the breakpoints really happened. Is there an SB API to list watchpoints? If there is, it would be a better fit for this test instead of matching the output of a command.


I see, this is the actual test that no watchpoints are present. I'm fine with adding this new test, I think testing it this way makes sense, but please also find a way to make sure the list of watchpoints is empty.

I merge both tests (auto-confirm enabled & --force flag) into one.

FWIU, m_interpreter.Confirm(message, default_answer) checks first the auto-confirm setting, When enabled, it returns the default answer (true in this case) otherwise, it triggers the IOHandler for the user input.
