Hello,
I have used an external library with my project in C::B, it compiles without problems, but C::B is unable to find references of the functions of that library from the context menu. also gdb debugger can not step into these functions though I have the source code of the library.

How to make this possible ?

Thank you for you understanding.

Our parser is not "that" great for this things... I don't know what limit it hits, maybe someone can point out what is going on.

Are you sure that the library is build with debug symbols, and the are not striped out?

You can add paths to the debugger via
Project->Properties->Debugger->Additional debugger search dirs

Sorry, My bad, the library is a Release Build.
