When you GPF you’re given a stack trace with several fairly useless addresses
However if you’re in Debug mode and have
%Bin%\Debug\ClaRun.dll in place
then in addition to the (fairly useless) addresses,
you also get the
(note: routines appear with a
R$ prepended to their name)
So using the
%Bin%\Debug\ClaRun.dll is a great thing.
However, every time you compile, the IDE copies over the
ClaRun.dll with the
So… how do you configure the IDE so it gives you the Debug version?
The answer is in your .RED file.
Below is the default %Bin%\ClaRun.dll
[Copy] -- Directories only used when copying dlls *.dll = %BIN%;%BIN%\AddIns\BackendBindings\ClarionBinding\Common;%ROOT%\Accessory\bin;%libpath%\bin\%configuration%
Below is the debug version -
basically you’re adding
%BIN%\Debug; to the start of the list
%Bin% is the where you’re installed Clarion plus
[Copy] -- Directories only used when copying dlls *.dll = %BIN%\Debug;%BIN%;%BIN%\AddIns\BackendBindings\ClarionBinding\Common;%ROOT%\Accessory\bin;%libpath%\bin\%configuration%
If you’re compiling the RTL into your program
LinkMode = Lib
Then alter your .RED to point to the debug version of
APPARENTLY this file ships with PE, but not with EE - go figure.
See PTSS this was fixed at some point (I don’t recall which builds have this problem)
[Debug] ClaRunL.lib = %ROOT%\lib\Debug
Now… go fix those GPF’s so you don’t have too look at this anymore.
