Hey so I recently got back into D a bit, but I'm having a bit of trouble with debugging.

So for this minimal test file:

void main()
{
    int x = 5;
    int y = x * 20;


    float b = 6.7432143;

    b *= 2;

}

Compiled with gdc (Ubuntu 7.2.0-8ubuntu3) 7.2.0
$ gdc -g test.d -otest

I get this output in gdb
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(gdb) b main
Breakpoint 1 at 0x104f9: file /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/7/include/d/__entrypoint.di, line 44.
(gdb) r

(gdb) n
45      }
(gdb)

(gdb)
[Inferior 1 (process 11211) exited normally]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Sometimes if I reformatted the text, it would print a random line, such as 'b *= 2'
but it was more less random.

I also did try forcing different dwarf versions, but it was the exact same result.


If I need to post anymore info please let me know.
Thanks!

I'm not a GDC/gdb user, but with "b main" you are breaking into the automatically generated C main function, not D's main. Try "b Dmain" or "b _Dmain" or use the source line.

Oh that's totally it. Thank you! :)
