I know that this question must have been asked before but a few days
of searching newsgroups and web sites did not turn up any answers. I
also could not find a way to search pervious posting to this mailing
list. On to my question...
I have some C code that I want to call from Perl. I make a test.c
file that has a main routine in it so that I could make sure that the
code compiles and runs, which it does. I then do all the XS stuff and
perl Makefile.PL, make, make test and my C code dumps core. I was able
to find out where (after using a bunch of printf statements) the code is
dumping core. It is a call to XpmCreatePixmapFromData. I need to launch
a debugger to find out why the call to this routine is dumping core. I
do test the results of this call but the program never gets that far. Do
I need to rebuild Perl with debuggin symbols in order to debug?
I know that this is way too long but I though that someone might have
been in the same boat. So how in the world do I debug my Perl Module?
