Title: Debugging App
Post by: JimKueneman on November 24, 2012, 01:26:23 am
I have an app that uses SynEdit for com port support.  The problem is I get a random crash that I can't track down.  The main problem is I can't run the app in the debugger because when I do the com port will not connect and I can't run the app where the problem occurs.  Simple question:

1) Any thoughts why the com port won't work under the debugger
2) Is there any tricks to understanding where the app crashes when running stand along?

You can put lots of
Code: [Select]
in there (essentially writeln)

Then you must start your app from console:
Code: [Select]

In project options check "display line numbers in run time error backtraces (-gl). This also prints to console

Make sure, that all used (or at least those that may be part of a stacktrace) packages, have debug info enabled.(open each package and check the options)

If you get a stacktrace, you can use "leak view" from tools menu.
