hello! I'd like to step through an entire program, and dump each executed
line fo file. I can do
gdb myprogram > tee savefile
and it displays the currently executed line. I'd like the equivalent of
typing si multiple times; trying
(gdb) si 1000
apparently steps through 1000 lines and shows me THAT line.
Is there some nifty si or shell trick to do this? Sorry for the newbie
question, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
You should be able to write a GDB command file to do it. I think this
myprogram > tee savefile
# Loop while the program hasn't finished
while($_exitcode == (void *)0)
Although I haven't tested that, but if it is not that it is something
close. You can read up on command files in the manual, but basically,
write a file with the above in, then run GDB with the -x option.
eg: gdb myprogram -x myscript
Hopefully that will work. Appologies if I'm wrong, it's been a long
day of memory leak fixing :(
Thanks very much,
