Following source files with gdb/xxgdb

Hello folks,

I haven't used C and the debuggers in a long time, and I'm currently in a project where I need to do some debugging. I have an application written in C and some .a libs which have functions called by the program. I need to be able to follow each function which is called no matter which file it is in. For example, when I start the main program and have its source file in my xxgdb window, when I get to a function call which is in some other file or even the library, I want either the particular source file the function is in to appear in the source window so I can follow it, or I can manually open the relevant source file myself, as long as the debugger can follow it.

How can I do this, if possible? I am going to compile all the C files with gcc -g, including the files used to make the .a libs with ar. I'd appreciate some prompt assistance here. Thanks.

Salman

NAME
gzexe - compress executable files in place SYNOPSIS
gzexe name ... DESCRIPTION
The gzexe utility allows you to compress executables in place and have them automatically uncompress and execute when you run them (at a penalty in performance). For example if you execute ``gzexe /usr/bin/gdb'' it will create the following two files: -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1026675 Jun 7 13:53 /usr/bin/gdb -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2304524 May 30 13:02 /usr/bin/gdb~ /usr/bin/gdb~ is the original file and /usr/bin/gdb is the self-uncompressing executable file. You can remove /usr/bin/gdb~ once you are sure that /usr/bin/gdb works properly. This utility is most useful on systems with very small disks. OPTIONS
-d Decompress the given executables instead of compressing them. SEE ALSO
gzip(1), znew(1), zmore(1), zcmp(1), zforce(1) CAVEATS
The compressed executable is a shell script. This may create some security holes. In particular, the compressed executable relies on the PATH environment variable to find gzip and some standard utilities (basename, chmod, ln, mkdir, mktemp, rm, sleep, and tail). BUGS
gzexe attempts to retain the original file attributes on the compressed executable, but you may have to fix them manually in some cases, using chmod or chown. GZEXE(1)
