I always write source code and use
gcc -g somefile.c
to creat program which can debug by gdb.
And now, I am reading a little bigger program's source code.
I made some change and want to debug it.
I only can
to run it and see the result.
I want to kown, how to debug it with gdb on this condition?
I don't konw a lot about configure and make, if there is some books to explain thes ?
if you just run ./configure and then make you will get the
binaries where ever the programer configured make to put them.
of course you could ask the program maintainers how to debug it
the GNU c programming tutorial has notes on using make
But if you are in a professional environment (i.e. a job) it's best to keep it simple.
A combination of vi and make will be on virtually every system. As you become
skilled you build up tricks, scripts templates etc. and it becomes a lot more
efficient to work in this way.
If it wasn't true vi and make would have died years ago!
