And catch syscall? I think it hang too.
Do we need process record and replay in 7.0 release?
It's in submit process.
Neither of these features seem critical to me, but that's only
a personal opinion. As GDB Maintainer, I think of my role as being
the technician that implements the recommendations of the GDB
Maintainers. If the maintainers think this is critical, then
I'll add them to the list as blocking for the release.
That being said, this does not mean that they will not make it
for the release. If they get checked in before we branch, then
For what its worth, I can't speak to the level of criticality of
process record and replay, but we would really like to see this in
the 7.0 release.
I am almost ready with the Eclipse support for it (I manually
applied the patches to GDB) and plan on doing a demo at EclipseCon.
From what I was told, reverse debugging generates a lot of interest
in people and would be a great addition to GDB.
Ditto. Last year I gave a talk about being a GDB maintainer
at the Silicon Valley Linux User's Group, and the entire Q&A
period was taken up by "When can we get this reverse debugging
of which you speak?"
Great work on the whole Reverse Debugging feature and
Process Record and Replay!
