I am using the xlC compiler(IBM C and C++ Compilers, Version 3.6.6)for
compilation of C++ code, on AIX 4.3.3
To debug this code after the executable is built, I need to use a
de*. If I use dbx, the de* hangs indefinitely at "reading
symbols ..." . I also tried gdb, which gives me a virtual memory
exhausted error. If I debug a simple C++ program with either dbx/gdb,
I am able to do so without any problem.
Is there a way to reduce the size of these shared libraries; there are
no virtual inline functions in the code & there is no code bloat due
to multiple template object instantiations.
I want to confirm if there are differant de*s for debugging C &
C++ programs, or the same de* - dbx is used for debugging both.
Has anybody tried debugging C++ programs compiled using above
compiler(3.x) with Visual Age C++ de*? Would it be worth a try?
Thanks in advance,
