Return immediately from the currently selected frame, with an optional return value. In LLDB, lld the following:. But it mostly works, and makes the transition easier. This allows you to set a breakpoint, etc without having to explicitly interrupt the program you are debugging:. Set a breakpoint at all Objective-C methods whose selector is count.
To set the same file and line breakpoint in LLDB you can enter either of: This way of operation will set us up for a future debugging mode called thread centric debugging. Run until we hit line 12 or control leaves the current function.
When we eventually support keeping some threads running while others are stopped this will be particularly important. This will not only dump the class methods and instance methods, but also the properties implemented by this class and the address in memory of where this code is loaded in memory. Commanda the following in LLDB:.
Setting watchpoints In addition to breakpoints, you can use help watchpoint to see all the commands for watchpoint manipulations. Get information about a specific heap allocation and cast the result to any dynamic type that can be deduced l,db on Mac OS X only.
Set a breakpoint at all Objective-C methods whose selector is count. Look up information for a raw address in the executable or any shared libraries.
The frame variable command will also perform “object printing” operations on variables currently we only support ObjC printing, using the comamnds “description” method. Then you can apply the name to your breakpoints, and they will all pick up these options. This one is a bit messy at present.
LLDB to GDB Command Map
The individual commands are pretty extensively documented. You can also attach to a process by process ID or process name. That is, lldb will always make a breakpoint from your specification, even if it couldn’t find any locations that match the specification. If you need to view more complex data or change program data, you can use the general “expression” command.
Here’s a short precis of how to run lldb if you are familiar with the gdb command set. Skip 8 bytes ahead of the current program counter instruction pointer. The first instance you’ll note of this is the breakpoint command. You can tell whether the expression was resolved or not by checking the locations field in “breakpoint list”, and we report the breakpoint as “pending” when you set it so you can tell you’ve made a typo more easily, if that was indeed the reason no locations were found: The primitive commands for process control all exist under the “thread” command: Disassemble 20 instructions from a given address.
Goals and Status
When attaching to a process by name, lldb also supports the ” –waitfor ” option which waits for the next process that has that name to show up, and attaches to it lldb process attach –pid lldb process attach –name Sketch lldb process oldb –name Sketch –waitfor After you launch or attach to a process, your process might stop somewhere: The ivars as well as the methods ckmmands are built off of code already compiled into an iOS executable.
Loading a program into lldb First we need to set the program to debug.
Custom LLDB Commands in Practice |
This is an convenient point to bring up another feature of the lldb command help. Using the methods command, you can search through interesting code that can help you determine how to uniquely identify a particular SBIconImageView. To get a backtrace for that thread, do: In gdb, to set a breakpoint, you might enter gdb break foo. Launch a process for with arguments a. In gdb, to set a breakpoint, you might enter. List the main executable and all dependent shared libraries.
This article will showcase the end product of some of the awesome tools you can and hopefully will build in the book. For example, instead of breakpoint setbr se can be used. Do a source-level single step over in the currently selected thread. So when you make the breakpoint you would do: To submit a product bug or enhancement request, please visit the Bug Reporter page.
LLDB Quick Start Guide
This means commxnds can use Xcode to attach to SpringBoard and use all the shortcuts and commands you are accustomed to. A even better solution is to make a fully configured breakpoint name: Show the arguments that will be or were passed to the program when run.
A process, by default, will share the lldb terminal with the inferior process. You can cimmands whether the expression was resolved or not by checking the locations field in “breakpoint list”, and we report the breakpoint as “pending” when you set it clmmands you can tell you’ve made a typo more easily, if that was indeed the reason no locations were found:.
Print the dynamic type of the result of an expression. I often like to see how developers have created something while in production. This will break on any C functions named main.
