'PIC 16F877 Background Debugger Mode'
Can anyone explain how this is implemented? I haven't found an
explanation in Microchip's documentation except where the bit is set in
the configuration word to enable this mode.
I would guess that a breakpoint register is loaded in a similar manner
as programming is done but what is the command and what address is
jumped to when the breakpoint is hit?

You need to ask for the DOS for the chip.

The 877 manual touches it briefly in 12.14 In-Circuit Debugger. At the
seminar, and confirmed by the manual, a portion of memory from 1f00 to 1fff
is reserved for the breakpoint handler and interface to the ICD components.
I couldn't find any references to how the address for the breakpoint is
set, but there sure seems to be a lot of unused and reserved registers....
