Passing command line arguments to dbg

Post by Xavi » Fri Jul 23, 2010 9:47 pm

I don't understand well the commands "-exec-run " + args or "target remote "+ comm + " " + args of DbgGdb::Run()
But in the typical main( int argc, char ** argv ), argc is always 1; the ejutable program name.
It would be better to set the arguments, if any, with the command "set args" + args

OT: I guess root sources of wxScintilla now (wxWidgets > 2.8) is in the adaptation of {wxWidgets.svn}\src\stc
Is it right?

codelite does not use the standard CLI interface of gdb, it uses the MI interface (its the Machine Interface of gdb).

using

Code: Select all

(gdb)set args <arguments>... 
(gdb)run
is similar to

Code: Select all

(gdb)run <arguments>
codelite uses:

Code: Select all

-exec-run <arguments>
Anyways, what is the problem that you are trying to solve?

This is the way codelite connect to gdbserver to allow remote debugging

No, codelite uses its own source which are fork of the last maintained version of wxScintilla (1.62) - the sources are up to date to version 2.2 of scintilla + many changes I made into them.
STC is another component (similar to wxScintilla) - but they are not the same.

Anyways, what is the problem that you are trying to solve?
With GNU gdb (GDB) 7.1.50.20100702-cvs configured as "i686-w64-mingw32"
in the typical main( int argc, char ** argv ), argc is always 1.

I need to use the Startup Commands to take the arguments .-
set args <and paste Program Arguments:>

Okay, please could you apply the patch attached to adapt scintilla > 2.12

Some information about this .-

http://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/Manuals/gdb- ... tml#SEC231
http://sourceware.org/gdb/current/onlin ... -Execution

Maybe they need to do -exec-arguments args
Set the inferior program arguments, to be used in the next `-exec-run'.

-exec-run says nothing of arguments.

HTH,
Best regards

Thanks,
The attached patch works fine.
I have not touched anything in the remote debugger, I guess that is used in the way .-

http://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/Manuals/gdb- ... tml#SEC135

and more arguments may be useful.

HTH,
Best regards
