Is there a mechanism for clearing all breakpoints (remove instrumentation en masse) so as to avoid the need to manually run eval-defun on each instrumented function's definition?

    The code of edebug-instrument-function shows that the function is not instrumented if (get symbol 'edebug) is a marker and the function is instrumented if (get symbol 'edebug) is a cons. Currently your version of edebug-remove-all-instrumentation evals defuns of uninstrumented functions if they have been instrumented before. – Tobias Apr 18 '17 at 18:44
  • @Tobias Thanks for the observation! I've updated the function. – ebpa Apr 18 '17 at 18:52

Consensus seems to be that there is no such function built-in.

Since edebug instrumentation data is stored on the target symbols, I have been using the following basic function:

(defun ebpa/edebug-remove-all-instrumentation ()
  "Remove all edebug instrumentation by visiting each function
definition and running `eval-defun`."
   (lambda (symbol)
     (when-let (pos (car-safe (get symbol 'edebug)))
       (with-current-buffer (marker-buffer pos)
         (goto-char (marker-position pos))
         (eval-defun nil))))))
