How to build a program in Debug


I wish to debug a C++ application in Eclipse. How do I modify my makefile or what command line parameters do I need to use when making the program so that I can build it in Debug?

For gcc, use the -g flag for debug info, and -ggdb for debug info optimized for the GDB debugger.
