Re: [cdt-dev] Mac debug needs attention (patches are available!)

Thank you Mike for your time and feedback. Would you mind adding the comments in Bugzilla? We can continue the discussion on individual bugs there.

I was also hoping for some attention from committers. Anyone? I think it would be possible for a committer to fix the bugs even without a Mac with proper code review and testing from the community. This has been done successfully in bug 270790 thanks to Andrew and the help of users with Macs. Maybe we could do this again but this time, we need the help of a "debug committer".

Hello all,

As you might know, debugging on Mac is not in a very good state. It has been said that the community would need to fix these issues since the majority a committers don't have a Mac. So, I made patches for the following bugs:

- Debug value view fails to update 'Value' column (250037), also fixes the same bug in DSF
- [Mac] Debug launch takes 20 extra sec (CLI problem) (294538)
- [Mac] Registers view very slow to open the first time (294537)
- GDB can't halt debugging process (265483)
- CDT gdb/mi fails to parse result of gdb cmd "thread info" (269838)

It would be great if someone could take a look at these patches and at least give some feedback. I won't be available tomorrow for the CDT Monthly Call so if someone can bring it up, I would be grateful.



Cursory testing of the patch included with bug 265483 shows that I can indeed set more break points and have CDT stop the program at those new break points that were set _after_ the program was already being debugged.
