As I understand, the optimize for debug setting (-Og) should work correctly for setting breakpoints and stepping through code.

In my setup, using -Og exhibits problems with breakpoints/line numbers. It basically acts like I am using -O3:

  • Breakpoints occur a few lines below intended line
  • Stepping does not function correctly (line numbers incorrect)

Have already tried:

  1. Clean Build. Yes, I have cleaned - even started from import project to workspace so it was a fresh new project.
  2. Fresh eclipse. Used a new Eclipse environment.

When switching to 'Optimize None', then everything works as expected. My colleague, who is on the same project & compiler can use optimize for debug with no impact on breakpoints/stepping.

It leads me to believe there may be some setting that is incorrect in my eclipse setup. Any ideas are welcome!
