GCC Compatibility

Are there any plans to allow RemedyBG to work with the symbol files that GCC generates? I'm aware that it's compatible with clang and msvc, but I would like to continue to use the compiler that I'm comfortable with rather than changing over a single debugger. Thank you for any information.

You can try using Mingw-w64 GCC with cv2pdb to convert the DWARF to a PDB.

gcc -g -o example.exe main.c
cv2pdb example.exe
remedybg example.exe


You can get cv2pdb here: https://github.com/rainers/cv2pdb

There may be some rough edges with the suggested tools as well as RemedyBG. Happy to take a look if you bump into any problems.

Managed to get it working using those instructions. Thanks for the help. Funnily enough, it only works if you launch remedybg through the command line like you suggested - if you start up remedybg seperately then add the command and working directory later, it doesn't work at all - though you still see the disassembly of course.

Edit: Only problem I can see is that the watch doesn't properly see some variables, even when adding the {*} before it, and checking the whole call stack. Dunno why this is.
