Using Debug mode.

Recommended Posts

I don't know how autotools flow works. But in case you can use CMake, it is very easy to complie in debug mode, just add -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug when generating Makefile.


$ mkdir build_debug
$ cd build_debug
$ cmake ../ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
$ make -j8 simple_fifo
$ gdb ./examples/sysc/simple_fifo/simple_fifo

If you use the Makefile provided along the simple_fifo example, it should get compiled with debug symbols. On the console, you should see that the .cpp files get compiled with the "-g" switch. To actually make use of the debugging symbols, you have to execute the example in a debugger such as gdb (as Roman already pointed out).

By the way, "make -d" does not influence which flags are passed to the C++ compiler. It just makes the output of make itself more verbose.
