Title: Feature Request/Help: GDB Vector, nested vector, and strut viewing.[SOLVED]
Post by: PureBlackSin on July 19, 2012, 02:34:04 am
Hi guys, I have been searching the internet for a fix to my problem.

I regularly use vectors (who doesn't) and I was surprised to find that I couldn't directly view them in the debugger. Initially I wasn't too bothered and continued, using various workarounds. I also found a few scripts and homemade addons hanging around the internet which could have potentially helped, and if worst came to the worst I'd reboot and use MSVS to view the vectors, etc.

Out of all the "pretty" things you've made Code::Blocks do (all of which I really like), I'm somewhat surprised that this isn't a stock feature...

If this was a feature I could effectively abandon MSVS and Code::Blocks would cover all my needs.

Any chance this is becoming a feature, or is in the pipeline already and I've managed to not find it? I currently get the nightly builds (I did this in the hope that these would have the feature and the stable release was just lacking it..).

Any information on this would be great as I much prefer your IDE over many of the others! This is the only barrier :P

Cheers!

If you gdb is build with python enabled, you have no problem shown vectors.

Okay, I probably should have mentioned I'm a Linux/Ubuntu user. I tried for a couple of hours and using my google-foo and still couldn't get it working.

I ran this:

svn co svn://gcc.gnu.org/svn/gcc/trunk/libstdc++-v3/python

Created a file in /home called: .gdbinit

Put this in the file:

python
import sys
sys.path.insert(0, '/home/python')
from libstdcxx.v6.printers import register_libstdcxx_printers
register_libstdcxx_printers (None)
end

Still no joy :( I'm assuming that the Code::Blocks 8059 SVN nightly build and GDB 7.4-2012.04-0ubuntu2 combo  is python enabled. The GDB change log seems to suggest that it is python enabled, but I just skimmed it for the word python...

Also, still waiting to find out why this isn't all standard.

More help please!

First you need the latest build, because there are some improvements to the way C::B parses the output of GDB.
Then you should disable the "Watch scripts" in the settings of the debugger.
Instead of .gdbinit you can use another file and then you can put "source path_to_file" in the initial commands of the debugger. This works 100%.

Also gcc>=4.5 include the pretty printers in their installation by default, so no additional setup is needed.

Okay, I've disabled Watch scripts.
gcc version: 4:4.6.3-1ubuntu5 | So it doesn't look like it's there by default, I'm assuming there is a tickbox that needs to be ticked.

you can put "source path_to_file" in the initial commands of the debugger. This works 100%.

No idea what you mean by this, I looked though all the options in c::b and couldn't find where I could put this, or what "source path_to_file" should be, is it to the python scripts gained from the SVN checkout? That's what I assumed, still no luck...

Note: just thought I'd point out I'm trying to look at a vector<> of strings.

Also just updated to Code::Blocks SVN 813. Still no joy.

Any more help would be appreciated. :P

Post by: oBFusCATed on July 19, 2012, 10:53:43 pm
813 is not a recent revision...

And here for me it works, by only disabling the watch scripts in the options.
This is on gentoo running gcc-4.7.0, my project doesn't build with 4.6, so I can't test, but I'm sure it will work, too.

Can you paste the full log from the debugger?

From the above log message, I believe that either you use a gdb which does not have python enabled or you stl pretty printer does not load correctly.
Title: Re: Feature Request/Help: GDB Vector, nested vector, and strut viewing.
Post by: oBFusCATed on July 20, 2012, 01:02:00 pm
Another thing you could try is to stop on a breakpoint and then to execute the following command:
Code: [Select]
info pretty-printer

This will list all available printers.
If the list is empty, the printers have not been installed correctly.
If the command is not supported your gdb doesn't support python.

It seems that I can see any command to load the pretty printer for std c++.

You need to add a command: (There is an option in Codeblocks' debugger setting dialog)

Code: [Select]
source /path/to/some.gdb
Note:
The file "/path/to/some.gdb" should contains the script mentioned here:

ollydbg: this is not needed, becase gdb supports auto loading them...

pureblacksin: try this command in a terminal
Code: [Select]
$ ldd /usr/bin/gdb | grep pyt
It will tell you if gdb is compiled with python support, if the output is empty, then you have no luck.
But I'm pretty sure it will be non-empty.
Also you can search for the printer files, they are python scripts.
See what do I have on my system:

Right first bit had an output of:

libpython2.7.so.1.0 => /usr/lib/libpython2.7.so.1.0 (0x00007fd03bcfc000)

I have the first three files in a couple of folders which I downloaded, they are not in those directories, I don't have those directories.

The last two, the closest I can get to that path is:
Code: [Select]
/usr/share/gdb/gdb/auto-loadThis directory terminates, has two .gdb files in it neither of which look like yours.

I tried to run make in the checked out folder where the first three files were, make didn't work. I did this to see if it would generate any files...

Then you should manually download the stl python printer files and to put the loading code in the .gdbinit or another file which you have to source in the initial commands.

Right, I have re-done that. I now have the python files checked out to the home directory, in the home directory I made a file called .gdbinit like I was told and have pointed the file at the python folder, i.e. the one that was checked out.

Now how to I tell the debugger to read the .gdbinit from the home directory... This could be the bit that is going wrong. Also, what file is the .gdbinit file looking for? I might need to let it look deeper into the python, checked out folder.

Try to put "source ~/.gdbinit" in the initial commands in the settings.
C::B uses the -nx command line flag to tell gdb to not read the ~/.gdbinit file by default.

Starting debugger: /usr/bin/gdb -nx -fullname  -quiet source ~/.gdbinit -args /host/James/Ubuntu/C-C++/ParseWords/bin/Debug/ParseWords
done

Put the source command in the initial commands field, not the args field...
If it doesn't work, put the initialization code in another file and source it.
You have to see "source my_file.source" command in the log, not in the gdb command line.
