[cdt-dev] Re: Need to know how to debug the indexer

Thanks Doug. I was hoping you would answer.

the Eclipse SDK version needs be correct as well).

Launch an Eclipse Application under the debugger. When the indexer hangs,
hit the suspend button for the whole session. Then take a look at each
thread to see if they were stopped somewhere interesting.

You'd have to play around with it a bit to see if it's really hung, or just
taking a long time, and whether it is hung because of a deadlock (i.e. all
of the threads were in a wait), or an infinite loop somewhere in the parser
or indexer.

Subject: [cdt-dev] Need to know how to debug the indexer

It seems that there was a discussion a while back on how to debug the
indxer and adding some code to support a logging function. Did anything

I have a project with 400+ files and the indexer always hangs on a
particular file. I typed on the command line "gcc - E -P -v -dD
include-dirs file.c" and an output is generated with no errors. How do I
determine what the indexer is doing?

How do I go about debugging this?
   My System
   Windows XP
   Eclispe SDK 3.3M4
   CDT SDK 4.0.0M4

What I have tried:
   Created a .options file containing the following:

I executed the following command
   eclipse -debug .options

The results:
An extra DOS console window opened up and printed several diagnostic
messages up to the point of loading the project. Nothing else printed
afterwards. Nothing printed during the Rebuild Index operation.

Do I need to add the entire CDT as a project and run it in debug mode?
