It's possible to type my own commands in that debugging log window in codeblocks?
Yes it is possible after the debugger stopped, you can enter commands in the text field below the log.

Okay, so I'm typing this in codeblocks log now.

This works:
Code: [Select]
disassemble 0x401690
This also works:
Code: [Select]
info frame
This doesn't:
Code: [Select]
if 1
disassemble 0x401690
info frame
end

It's like "end" doesn't work, it never gets out of that if.

Anybody knows why I can't send an empty line to the debugger? I feel like I only need to press enter one extra time for it to work, but interface just wouldn't let me.

Because empty lines repeat the last command and doesn't make much sense.
Does the complex sequence of commands work when running from terminal?

Yes, though I have to press enter twice for some reason. I actually already said this in Reply #9.

Hm, annoying...

Can you try some older gdb?

huh, with gdb 7.6.1 it actually works fine.

I can use this one for now, awesome. I can start actually working now. Getting new version to work would be good too, if you need to check something, I'm still around.

Can you show the same log from the working version?
