digitalmars.D - Stack Traces on Linux

What determines whether the function name or just the address will be printed
out when a stack trace is printed on Linux?  I'm trying to debug an error and
all I'm getting is hex addresses.  I have no idea why.  With other programs I
get full function names.

I'm not sure, but aren't debug symbols needed (i.e. did you compile with -g)?

Add this flag -L--export-dynamic and compile with -gc (-g may work) http://www.digitalmars.com/d/archives/digitalmars/D/A_working_backtrace_for_linux_114405.html

IIRC with gcc you need to add -rdynamic when linking. Jerome --=20 mailto:jeberger free.fr http://jeberger.free.fr Jabber: jeberger jabber.fr
