digitalmars.D - Windows Stack Traces: Function Names?

reply dsimcha <dsimcha yahoo.com> writes:
I've noticed that stack trace support has been added for Windows in the 
latest DMD release.  However, it seems to only print function addresses 
(basically useless) instead of function names like it does on Linux.  Is 
there a way to enable function names being printed on Windows? 
(Compiling w/ debugging symbols doesn't seem to do it.)

Function names work for me when using -g or -gc. I recall that you need a recent version of dbghelp.dll to see the function names. -- Best regards, Vladimir mailto:vladimir thecybershadow.net

 You can run cv2pdb on the exe via "cv2pdb main.exe main.exe", and the
 names will show up. Installing new versions of dbhelp.dll didn't work
 for me.

Ok, got it.  I think I've found out why different people keep getting different
results.  If I compile and link in one step, everything works, i.e.:

dmd -g test.d
test

If I compile and link in separate steps, which is the default for my IDE, it
doesn't work, i.e.:

dmd -c -g test.d
dmd test.obj
test

Unless there's a good reason why this shouldn't work, I'll be filing a bug
report.
 BTW, the binary produced by the second method is ~90k smaller than the one
produced by the first method, so it's probably missing some information.

...It still doesn't seem to work when optimization (the -O flag) is enabled, though.

I believe you need to pass -g to dmd when linking, too. -- Best regards, Vladimir mailto:vladimir thecybershadow.net
