Where is the debugger?
« on: November 18, 2008, 08:36:36 pm »
Where is gdc? I installed MingGW but I can't find gdc. I tried downloading but all I could find were version for linux.
Can anyone please help me out here? Where can I download a windows version?

The debugger you want for MinGW is "gdb", not "gdc". Depending on how you installed MinGW, it may already be there (in the "bin" directory), or you may need to download it from the MinGW download page on SourceForge.

Indeed I meant gdb. As I said I downloaded MinGW but there is no gdb

You can install the full version of Codeblocks with mingw. After installing, all is ready for you.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

If you, as you say, installed the codeblocks-8.02mingw-setup.exe which is for windows, the debugger is already installed and ready to be used. Keep in mind though that the debugger, so far, only works with projects. A choice of yours for "an empty file" will result in a grayed out debbuger menu.
