I did see when I read through the source that there is a built-in debugger.
(I imagine I could set a breakpoint on setenv, say.)
When dejagnu wizards are tracking problems down, do they use the
debugger, or what?
Actually, I do use the built in Expect/Tcl debugger. There are a few
commands I wrote to mimic GDB commands, but being able to set a breakpoint
is great. I wish I had had that ability during the first bunch of years I was
working on DejaGnu.
Yeah, I had a feeling that was the way to go. I'll try it out.
I believe these are the pages in your manual on the subject:
Also, here's something you wrote that maybe should be folded into the manual?
Are there any pages about starting and using the interactive debugger somewhere?
Presumably it's a standard TCL thing, but I couldn't find anything about it
at scriptics or with google. (I first used TCL in 1988 or so, but
that doesn't mean I know anything, it didn't stick.)
