Re: [cdt-dev] why does debugger take so long to start

- [Mac] Registers view very slow to open the first time (294537)

Also, if you can get to the email list archives there are a number of bugs you will run into while trying to debug on OS X.

The subject line of the email thread is: "[cdt-dev] Mac debug needs attention (patches are available!)"

Here is the content:

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.



So if you can apply all those patches the debugging experience becomes A LOT better on OS X. I applied them all yesterday and now CDT is back up there with Xcode and QtCreator for debugging. Still some rough spots but MUCH better.

I've been trying to become familiar with developing C applications with eclipse, and while it's a little rough, it's manageable. Starting the debugging process, however, takes forever and it's starting to give me pause about using it in a production environment. Why is starting the debugger so slow?
