ocamldebug: the OCaml source-level replay debugger.

NAME

ocamldebug - the OCaml source-level replay debugger.

SYNOPSIS

ocamldebugoptions program arguments ]

DESCRIPTION

ocamldebug is the OCaml source-level replay debugger.

Before the debugger can be used, the program must be compiled and linked with the -g option: all .cmo and .cma files that are part of the program should have been created with ocamlc -g, and they must be linked together with ocamlc -g.

Compiling with -g entails no penalty on the running time of programs: object files and bytecode executable files are bigger and take longer to produce, but the executable files run at exactly the same speed as if they had been compiled without -g.

OPTIONS

A summary of options are included below. For a complete description, see the html documentation in the ocaml-doc package.
-c count
Set the maximum number of simultaneously live checkpoints to count.
-cd dir
Run the debugger program from the working directory dir, instead of the current working directory. (See also the cd command.)
-emacs
Tell the debugger it is executed under Emacs. (See The OCaml user's manual for information on how to run the debugger under Emacs.) Implies -machine-readable.
-I directory
Add directory to the list of directories searched for source files and compiled files. (See also the directory command.)
-machine-readable
Print information in a format more suitable for machines instead of human operators where applicable. For example, when describing a location in a program, such as when printing a backtrace, print the program counter and character offset in a file instead of the filename, line number, and character offset in that line.
-s socket
Use socket for communicating with the debugged program. See the description of the command set socket in The OCaml user's manual for the format of socket.
-version
Print version string and exit.
-vnum
Print short version number and exit.
-help or --help
Display a short usage summary and exit.
