I am developing an extension for Ruby and wish to debug it using
I used mkmf.rb to generate the Makefile to compile the bundle.
The extension works fine, I am adding more complicated features and
would like to use XCode to debug the more complicated bits.
I was able to start irb to exercise the extension and I was able to
attach to the irb process from XCode.
But it does not seems to be honour the breakpoints I set in the
As a comparison, I am able to attach to the ruby process on Windows
using Visual Studio and when I load and run my extension, it does stop
at the break points I set.
Is there some addition compiler/linker flag I need to set in my
extconf.rb file for XCode to play well with irb? Given that OSX(BSD)
and Linux have similarity, I am wondering if anyone is using an IDE to
debug Ruby extension on Linux, e.g. Eclipse?
BTW, I am writing my extension using C++.
