D.gnu - debug doesn't work?

reply "Ramon" <spam thanks.no> writes:
The compiler switch '-debug' isn't recognized (which isn't a 
problem per se, but...)

"debug" statements in the code are ignored.

Example:

...
debug
    writeln("DBG: var X is: ", X, "'");

...

When in the debugger (gdb) the "debug" section (the 2 lines 
above) are simply ignored/stepped over.

Is this a problem or is it me not knowing how to do it properly?

Thanks -R

GDC uses a slightly modified form of DMD compile flags. The flag you're looking for is -fdebug. HTH. T -- "How are you doing?" "Doing what?"

Or use GDMD, a wrapper around GDC with the same command line syntax as DMD. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Tried, worked - great. Thanks for the friendly, quick fix - R
