Re: How to check that GDB is going to make a longjmp?
Hi again, sorry for the later reply.
Well with some more digging I find out that its not the long jumps that are
I actually don't know whats the error but I will try to explain my scenerio.
- I have a C file called main.c and I create a new C file called main2.c
- The main2.c is actually same as main.c but it contains lines like this,
- Such lines appear after every line in main2.c so that GDB reads these
lines and create stack frames from there.
- Now when I debug my executable created from main2.c.
- Everything works perfect while stepping but right after my program does
longjump (even the longjmp executes correctly), and then i try to do step
again my stack frames are corrupted. and return me some file with line
number which is not correct.
I am compiling with Mingw on windows 7 using these flags -ggdb -O0
