- Subject: Debugging question
I have a native windows program (compiled using cygwin's gcc acting in
mingw mode, with debugging information), can I debug it using cygwin's
gdb? It's emacs I'm talking about and I'm trying to provide the
developers information about a crash on windows vista. Doing this works
$ gdb emacs
$ run -Q
I see function names, files and line numbers involved before the crash.
Now I want to put a breakpoint somewhere and print some variables when
that breakpoint is hit. Can I do that in this scenario? If so, how do I
make gdb find emacs sources? Doing
$ break /cygdrive/c/full/path/to/source/file:1337 doesn't work (No
source file named blah blah).
If these questions, which basically is about gdb usage and mixing mingw
compiled binaries with cygwin tools is considered off-topic, I sincerly
