GDB Debugging Enhancement?
« on: October 23, 2007, 03:22:40 pm »
Sorry, I'm new to this forum but not new to Code::Blocks and had a suggestion / question. Would it be possible to add a small addition to the gdb configuration? Using a QNX debugger requires the additional parameter of "--debugger" to be set to one of QNX's *-gdb.exe"s before entering GDB initialization commands. I was thinking it would be useful to have the ability to pass a command line arguement or two to GDB. Of course I could be either A) missing something, or B) in the wrong forum... :)

Thanks for the great work so far!

Try setting additional parameters at Project > Properties > Debugger > Extra GDB init section.
Be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.

Ok, so I had that plugin disabled. What is Code::Blocks method to find gdb.exe? Is it path based, or something else? (Since now all I would need to do is express the desire to run ntoarm-gdb.exe instead of a "gdb.exe")

Settings > Compilers and debugger > Toolchain executables > Debugger.

Alright, let me say I apologize for the time used. However, might I say that I would not have looked under Compiler Settings for the debugger that I want to use when the Debugger Settings section is right there as well. I do appreciate the assistance, and thank you. Again, Code::Blocks has everything you need (just need to look for it, right?)

Yes you are right "Compiler toolchain" would be more precise. Anyway, Im very interessted in feedback for your experiences with ARM and C::B :)
