Source paths

Post by tom@compton.nu » Sat May 28, 2005 4:10 pm

It would be nice if DeskDebug allowed multiple source paths to be specified and then checked them in order when looking for source - this is common in unix debuggers like gdb on those systems stupid enough not to provide full paths in the debug information.

The reason I ask for this is that I have common library code that is in a different location to the application I am debugging so I can only have source for one or the other at the moment.

It would also be nice if the source search path(s) could be modified after the program being debugged has been started for all those times (about 99% or so ;-)) when you forget to set it before starting the program.

Even better would be if when it couldn't find the source for a file it poped up a window and asked you for the source path to use... That's one thing that Visual Studio actually gets right ;-)
