I'm using x86 Red Hat Linux 6.2.
Compile the appended java program (probably any program will do) like
gcj --main=x -g -o x x.java
Now debug it with the latest cvs trunk gdb:
gdb -nw ./x
Now try to set a breakpoint like this:
gdb just beeps at me.
So close the quotes and press enter:
(gdb) b 'x.main'
the class x does not have any method named main
Hint: try 'x.main'<TAB> or 'x.main'<ESC-?>
(Note leading single quote.)
Now try again:
(gdb) b 'x.main(java.lang.String)'
I think this must be a bug. I expected:
* First, that TAB would work correctly the first time.
* Second, that b 'x.main' would work anyway, since it is unambiguous.
(I only found the first bug because gdb has basically been forcing
me to hit TAB all along...)
public class x
public static void main (String args) throws Throwable
String x = "core:/zardoz.properties";
URL u = new URL (x);
System.out.println (u.getFile ());
