./devel/gdb, Symbolic debugger for multiple language frontends

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 8.3.1, Package name: gdb-8.3.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The purpose of a debugger such as GDB is to allow you to see what
is going on "inside" another program while it executes--or what
another program was doing at the moment it crashed.

GDB can do four main kinds of things (plus other things in support
of these) to help you catch bugs in the act:

* Start your program, specifying anything that might affect its
behavior.

* Make your program stop on specified conditions.

* Examine what has happened, when your program has stopped.

* Change things in your program, so you can experiment with
correcting the effects of one bug and go on to learn about
another.

      * 24454 (nat/x86-linux-dregs.c:146: internal-error: void
        x86_linux_update_debug_registers(lwp_info*): Assertion `lwp_is_stopped
        (lwp)' failed)
      * 24541 (Incorrect evaluation of systemtap probes due to
        register being signed and probe expression assuming unsigned)
      * 24545 (Symbol loading performance regression with cc1)
      * 24592 (amd64->i386 linux syscall restart problem)

        binaries)
    This corrective release also brings the following testsuite fixes and

        TAR, EBB/PMU, and HTM registers.

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.
