|feathers||[OPTION ...] [PROGRAM ARGUMENTS ...]|
feathers runs a program compiled with CHICKEN Scheme and allows basic source-level debugging like setting breakpoints, single-stepping and inspection of procedure arguments and global variables.
The Scheme code must be compiled with debug-level 3 for debugging to be possible. Communication with the debugger takes place by exchanging messages over a TCP socket, the address and port being given by the environment variable
CHICKEN_DEBUGGER which holds a connection address of the form ⟨ADDRESS⟩:⟨PORT⟩.
PROGRAM must give the path to the executable that is to be run,
PATH is not searched.
The program accepts following arguments:
Shows a list of supported command-line options.
Do not load the default startup file
TODO: Document this
- -dir DIRECTORY
Add DIRECTORY to the list of searched paths for locating source files.
- -port PORT
Select a different TCP port than the default (9999).
The following environment variables change the behaviour of feathers:
Should hold a TCP server address and port where the debugger is listening. This variable is set by the debugger when a program is run from it, and defaults to localhost:9999
The feathers utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
