debugapp - Man Page

A wrapper for openapp.


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


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.
