Troubleshooting compilation problems

Title / InfoDescriptionLicensePlatform
Icon dpackage 48.png
DustMite, is a D source code minimization tool. It's helpful in finding toolchain problems. Public Domain Windows/POSIX




To debug D programs you need to use a debugger that understands the format of the debug symbols information that your chosen compiler produces. The quality of the debug symbols information might vary depending on which compiler you use and its underlying debug format. For example, some compiler configurations may present the names of variables and/or functions in it's C mangled form, instead of the natural D name.

Debugging support by compiler

Compiler+Platform Format Debugger Supported functionality
DMD-Win32 OMF Mago/VisualD Good support: Breakpoints; Stack frames; Mostly pretty names ('.' shows up as '@'); Variable inspection; Visual Studio based.
Mago-MI Good support: Breakpoints; Stack frames; Variable inspection; GDB/MI compatible interface for Mago debugger.
WinDbg Supplied with the main D compiler zip file download. Overview
ddbg Doesn't seem to be working well. Project no longer maintained.
OllyDbg 2 Reasonable support when assisted by cv2pdb; stack frames; mangled symbols; shows source code alongside disassembly. Note: v2.01 has a bug that may cause frequent crashes when reading PDB files. Details and patch here.
DMD-Win64 COFF Mago/VisualD TODO: same level of support as for win32?

DMD-Linux
GDC-Linux
LDC-Linux
GDC-Win32/64

DWARF GDB Good support: Breakpoints; Stack frames; Pretty names; Variable inspection;
ZeroBUGS "Modular debugger for C/C++/D programming languages (and virtually anything else that supports Stabs/DWARF debug formats)". Supported debugging functionality??
LDC-MinGW DWARF - DWARF debug symbol info seems to be broken for LLVM compiled with MinGW note

DMD-MacOS
GDC-MacOS
LDC-MacOS

? GDB Limited/outdated support? According to Jacob Carlberg:

"D symbols need to be prefixed with an extra underscore." "Line numbers don't work."

LLDB ?
