Using gdb

Debugging of the C++ code on Mac and Unix can proceed as follows:

cd to your ImageJ directory that contains a self-starting Micro-Manager plugin:

   cd ~/ImageJ

Start gdb debugging java:

   $ gdb -arch i386 java

Now tell java on gdb to run ImageJ:

  (gdb) r -cp ij.jar ij.ImageJ

Control-C can interrupt execution.

Please refer to the gdb documentation for debugging commands.

Using NetBeans with gdb for C++ debugging

  1. Install NetBeans for C++ or install the C/C++ plugin for in your existing NetBeans installation.
  2. Choose File > New Project... . Select Categories=C/C++, Projects=C/C++ Project with Existing Sources.
  3. Specifiy the folder that contains existing sources (e.g., /projects/micromanager/) and press "Finish."
  4. Right-click the new project and select "Properties".
  5. Under Build...Make, Set Build Command to "make all; make install" and "Clean Command" to "make clean". Set Build Result to <your_ImageJ_directory>/ImageJ.app/Contents/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub .
  6. Add the following option to the netbeans_default_options="..." line of /Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans\ 6.8.app/Contents/Resources/NetBeans/netbeans.conf :
    -J-Dgdb.init.enable=true
  7. Create a .gdbinit file that informs gdb of the directories of all .cpp and .h source files you might wish to debug:
directory /projects/micromanager/
directory /projects/micromanager/MMCore
directory /projects/micromanager/MMDevice
directory /projects/micromanager/DeviceAdapters/DemoCamera
  1. Launch ImageJ (the Micro-Manager make install)
  2. Select Debug...Attach debugger.
