pdebug [-1eflsv] [-n priority_levels] device
- (“One”) Exit pdebug after the debugging
session is done.
- Echo the debugged program's stdin back to the host.
- Run pdebug as a foreground process.
- (“el”) By default, pdebug sets the
to 1 to force all binding to be done immediately instead of lazily.
To permit lazy binding, specify the -l option.
For more information, see
“Optimizing the runtime linker”
in the Compiling and Debugging chapter of the
QNX Neutrino Programmer's Guide.
- -n priority_levels
- Be nice; set the debugged program's priority to be
priority_levels lower than pdebug's.
Doing this can keep pdebug from becoming unresponsive
if the debugged process misbehaves (e.g. looping in a tight loop taking
lots of CPU time).
- Notify the host only of signals caused by faults.
- Be verbose;
- The device to use for the remote debug protocol; one of:
- Use stdout / stdin.
- Open and use the specified device, such as /dev/ser1,
optionally setting the baud rate.
- Accept connections on TCP/IP port number.
This utility provides access to process-level debugging from a remote host.
To use pdebug, you need to run
devc-pty on the
target machine (i.e. the machine being debugged).
For a 57600 baud serial connection on /dev/ser2:
pdebug /dev/ser2,57600 &
For a TCP/IP connection on port 8000:
pdebug 8000 &
