extending gdb debugger plugin
« on: February 14, 2017, 07:03:37 am »
Hi,

I am planning to extend the gdb debugger plugin, focusing more towards embedded systems. Problem is I don't know anything about the code and different files inside. How to start understanding present gdb debugger plugin code? File structure i.e; which file contains what? Their interdependency on other files?

If, there is any information that I can refer please let me know.

Note: I have already created hello world plugin on codeblocks sdk and installed successfully

Just read the code and try to understand it. There is no other documentation. Possibly use svn/git blame to see why a line of code is what it is.
