Re: [cdt-dev] stop on main by default

That sounds good. Personally, I'd make the option off by default. I'd like to hear from others if they agree with that.

The default for the new launch configurations should be configurable in the global preference page. We already have a bunch of GDB options available there. It would be nice to add 'Stop on startup' and 'Non-stop mode'.

Can you go a little bit deeper about what's wrong with stopping at main? Would moving the setting to the Main page help?

BTW, in many ways this is historical and borrowed from VisualStudio. In many IDEs, you can't set a breakpoint until you start the debugger, and main was the convenient first stop. Of course, that isn't true with Eclipse since breakpoints are persisted as markers. Mind you that has sparked a whole set of other issues.

I guess no one complained about it before. I'm not sure what the right answer is that satisfies the new user coming from Visual Studio and others who find this behavior bad. I'm looking forward to hear what people think.
