Why a single source file cannot be debugged?
« on: December 16, 2012, 09:15:05 am »
Hi,

   Codeblocks can compile a single source file (does not be contained in a project), and run the produced executable file. But, Codeblocks can not debug it. That is the debugger can not be started through pressing F8. If in a project, the debugger works well. So, I think this really strange. Is there any way to start the debugger for a single source file?

No !
It's discussed many times in the forum.

I think it may be supported in future. Is it a very hard work? I have no idea about it, but I really need it.

There are very good reasons not to do it. Search the forums.
