In the debug options dialog (reachable via ”Options—Debugger”), some options
for inclusion of debug information in the binary can be set; it is also possible to add
additional compiler options in this dialog. The debug options dialog is shown in figure (6.31).
Figure 6.31: The debug options dialog
The following options can be set:
- tells the compiler which debug information should be compiled in. One
of the following options can be chosen:
Strip all debug symbols from executable
- Will strip all debug and symbol
information from the binary. (option -Xs on the command line).
Skip debug information generation
- Do not generate debug information at all.
Generate debug symbol information
- Include debug information in the binary
(option -g on the command line). Please note that no debug information for units
in the Run-Time Library will be included, unless a version of the RTL compiled
with debug information is available. Only units specific to the current project will
have debug information included.
Generate also backtrace line information
- Will compile with debug information,
and will additionally include the lineinfo unit in the binary, so that in case of an
error the backtrace will contain the file names and line numbers of procedures in
the call-stack. (Option -gl on the command line.)
Generate valgrind compatible debug info
- Generate debug information that can
be read with valgrind (a memory checking tool).
- Tells the compiler whether or not profile code should be included in the
No profile information
- Has no effect, as it is the default.
Generate Profile code for gprof
- If checked, profiling code is included in the binary
(option -p on the command line).
Use another TTY for Debuggee
- An attempt will be made to redirect the output of the
program being debugged to another window (terminal), whose file name should be entered
