           Summary: debug symbols on OSX
           Product: D
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzi...@digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: bugzi...@digitalmars.com


There is a problem with debug symbols, namely source file paths, generated by
DMD on OS X. It seems that gdb cannot find any source files when debugging a
program compiled with DMD's -g (or -gc) switch, with a "no source file named
[whatever]" error, so setting breakpoints is impossible. GDC on OS X does not
have this problem. Some googling around has led me to discover that GNU gcc on
linux (not Apple gcc) also had this problem a few releases ago until it was
patched, caused by something to do with the pathnames used in the debug symbols
it generated, though I'm not sure of the technical details.
