I realize this is probably a GDB question, I sent a message to that
alias but have not gotten a response. I am hoping someone on this list
may have some experience with this and can answer the question.
The basic question is: "Should I be able to use GDB to load and execute
a VC++ application, and debug DLLs that application loads that where
built with gcc?"
Basically I have a program compiled with MSVC 6 (Release). This program
loads DLL's and executes them. I have built a DLL using GCC [gcc (GCC)
3.4.4 (cygming special, gdc 0.12, using dmd 0.125)]. The program loads
the DLL and executes it "correctly" (meaning that the dll is loaded and
functions called). I need to debug the DLL, so I would like to attach
GDB to the running process, then set a break point in my DLL and debug
it. When I do this GDB seems to hang loading symbols.
Any thoughts appreciated
