Debugging under QNX 6.2.1 NC

Post by Alexander Jasper » Sun Jun 22, 2003 5:25 pm

Hello All!

I'm studying computer science at the Technical University of Brunswik.
My research project is to evaluate if a robot control software can be
ported from QNX-Message-Passing to CORBA.

Hance I've been looking at closely at TAO (a Corba implementation) for a
while. Unfortuanetly I've major problems getting it to work. It works with
TCP/IP now but that is to slow if everything is on the same host. TAO is
still not configured to use UNIX domain sockets on the QNX platform. So I
enabled them my self but when I try to use them it gives me an error (not
saying what went wron). They *are* supported in 6.2.1, right?

The institue does not have the comercial version of the IDE. I don't belive
they can buy it.

So I need a way to debug this *besides* gdb command line interface. I tried
2 options, neither works:

- Downloaded Eclipse + CDT plugin: This needs gdb 5.2.1 but I've got 5.0
- DDD: gives me an error libXaw.so.7 not found.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Momentics bug

Post by Jack Rosenbloom » Thu Jul 03, 2003 6:31 pm

Hi All,

Under windows, Momentics compiles OK if the file extension is .cpp.
However, if the file extension is *.CPP, the outline window recognizes a
cpp file but the file is never compiled or linked. This is a problem
for me because I linking in numerous old files created with a 16 windows
editor where all names were 8.3 in upper case.

What release of QNX Momentics?

What flavour of Windows?

I tested this with a QNX C++ Application project -- took the default
xxx.cc file created, renamed it to xxx.CPP then built the project, and
that file was happily compiled and linked to give me an executable.

I did this under Momentics 6.2.1 on a Windows 2000 box.

I use win2000 service pack 2 with momentics 6.21a. This bug is very
repeatable on my system. I am just living with it as all the other
strange (and inconsistent) behaviors momentics has such as:

-) sometimes after saving a file, a build automatically occurs,
sometimes not
-) after editing a header file and then building, all dependent cpp
files are not always build. I often need to Rebuild, sometimes I don't.
-) when running 2 debugging sessions at once (client and server), about
10% of the time when one session hits a breakpoint, the other suspends
itself as if it hit a breakpoint.
