virtual void got_signal (int sig)
Called with signal sig is received. This is mainly for internal use.
void save_data_state (StateOut &)
Save the base classes (with save_data_state) and the members in the same order that the StateIn CTOR initializes them.

SavableState & operator= (const SavableState &)
void save_state (StateOut &)
Save the state of the object as specified by the StateOut object.
void save_object_state (StateOut &)
This can be used for saving state when the exact type of the object is known for both the save and the restore.
virtual void save_vbase_state (StateOut &)
Save the virtual bases for the object.
virtual void save_data_state (StateOut &)
Save the base classes (with save_data_state) and the members in the same order that the StateIn CTOR initializes them.

Public Member Functions inherited from sc::DescribedClass
DescribedClass (const DescribedClass &)
DescribedClass & operator= (const DescribedClass &)
ClassDesc * class_desc () const  throw ()
This returns the unique pointer to the ClassDesc corresponding to the given type_info object.
const char * class_name () const
Return the name of the object's exact type.
int class_version () const
Return the version of the class.
virtual void print (std::ostream &=ExEnv::out0()) const
Print the object.

Public Member Functions inherited from sc::RefCount
int lock_ptr () const
Lock this object.
int unlock_ptr () const
Unlock this object.
void use_locks (bool inVal)
start and stop using locks on this object
refcount_t nreference () const

refcount_t dereference ()
Decrement the reference count and return the new count.
int managed () const
void unmanage ()
Turn off the reference counting mechanism for this object.
int managed () const
Return 1 if the object is managed. Otherwise return 0.

Public Member Functions inherited from sc::Identity
Identifier identifier ()
Return the Identifier for this argument.

Static Public Member Functions

static void set_default_debugger (const Ref< Debugger > &)
Set the global default debugger. The initial value is null.
static Debugger * default_debugger ()
Return the global default debugger.

static SavableState * restore_state (StateIn &si)
Restores objects saved with save_state.
static SavableState * key_restore_state (StateIn &si, const char *keyword)

Detailed Description

The Debugger class describes what should be done when a catastrophic error causes unexpected program termination.

It can try things such as start a debugger running where the program died or it can attempt to produce a stack traceback showing roughly where the program died. These attempts will not always succeed.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

sc::Debugger::Debugger (const Ref< KeyVal > &)

The KeyVal constructor understands the following keywords:

debug

Try to start a debugger when an error occurs. Doesn't work on all machines. The default is true, if possible.

traceback

Try to print out a traceback extracting return addresses from the call stack. Doesn't work on most machines. The default is true, if possible.

exit

Exit on errors. The default is true.

wait_for_debugger

When starting a debugger go into an infinite loop to give the debugger a chance to attach to the process. The default is true.

sleep

When starting a debugger wait this many seconds to give the debugger a chance to attach to the process. The default is 0.

handle_defaults

Handle a standard set of signals such as SIGBUS, SIGSEGV, etc. The default is true.

prefix

Gives a string that is printed before each line that is printed by Debugger. The default is nothing.

cmd

Gives a command to be executed to start the debugger. The default varies with machine.

Member Function Documentation

void sc::Debugger::save_data_state (StateOut &) [virtual]

Save the base classes (with save_data_state) and the members in the same order that the StateIn CTOR initializes them. This must be implemented by the derived class if the class has data.

Reimplemented from sc::SavableState.

virtual void sc::Debugger::set_cmd (const char *) [virtual]

Sets the command to be exectuted when debug is called. The character sequence '$(EXEC)' is replaced by the executable name (see set_exec), '$(PID)' is replaced by the current process id, and '$(PREFIX)' is replaced by the prefix.

virtual void sc::Debugger::set_exec (const char *) [virtual]

Set the name of the exectuble for the current process. It is up to the programmer to set this, even if the Debugger is initialized with the KeyVal constructor.

virtual void sc::Debugger::set_wait_for_debugger (int) [virtual]

Turn on or off running an infinite loop after the debugger is started. This loop gives the debugger a chance to attack to the process. The default is on.

virtual void sc::Debugger::traceback (const char * reason = 0) [virtual]

The traceback member attempts a stack traceback for the current process. A symbol table must be saved for the executable if any sense is to be made of the traceback. Tracebacks are currently available only for a limited number of architectures.
