thread debugging

Tue May 25 09:21:00 GMT 2004

Hello All.

    I have a problem in thread debugging with GDB on HP-UX platform.

*** Sample program ***
/* thrd.c */

#include <pthread.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <errno.h>

void *func()
 printf("Thread function\n"); pthread_exit(NULL);

 pthread_t *t1; int result=0;

 bzero((void *)t1,sizeof(pthread_t));

 result = pthread_create(t1, NULL, func, NULL);
  if (result == EAGAIN) {
   printf("EAGAIN Error\n"); free(t1); exit(1);
  else if (result == -1) {
   printf("Negative return value\n"); free(t1); exit(1);
$ cc -g -o thrd thrd.c

gdb execution:
    $ gdb -q thrd
    gdb> b main
    gdb> b func
    gdb> r
    < After finishing the pthread_exit in main(),it is going to func()'s pthread_exit.>
    gdb> s
    It is hanging over here.........!! It is not responsing.

1. What is the problem on program? How to debug this?
2. Is it good to debug memory leaks with GDB + librtc library on HP-UX platfrom?
