debugapp (1) - Linux Man Pages

debugapp: A wrapper for openapp.

NAME

debugapp - A wrapper for openapp.

SYNOPSIS

debugapp [--find] [--gdb=...] application [arguments...]

DESCRIPTION

debugapp is a tool that helps you start or find applications by name in debugging mode. It acts as a wrapper around openapp , and calls openapp with the --debug option; we recommend using openapp directly.

By default gdb is used as the debugger, but this can be changed with the --gdb= option or through the GDB environment variable.

The arguments are the arguments passed to the application.

See the openapp (1) man-page for a complete description.

HISTORY

Work on debugapp started in October 1997 by Ovidiu Predescu <ovidiu [at] net-community.com>. In October 2006 Nicola Pero <nicola.pero [at] meta-innovation.com> merged it with openapp.
