Hints and tips

This is a list of hidden useful dbx information. These things may be removed at a future time, changed or break since they are not usually tested.



stop{}

On the stop command, you can add up to two commands that dbx will execute when the stop point is reached. For example:

stop in func1

{print "a=",a," b=",b}

stop at "fred.c":52 {clear 52; stop at 75}
               
debug37

After your program is running, at least stopped in main(), then you can set a "trace func" for every function in your program that dbx knows about by entering: debug 37.
