I created debug launcher and set target shell script as remote executable. I can able to execute the target scripts successfully from IDE, But I faced couple of issue. Issue 1: In my target shell script, the application shall run in the back ground (using &) process. The debugger immediately goes to exit state after it run the application from the target shell. Solution: I solved it by removing the & symbol from the shell for particular application. I can see the debugger is running. Issue 2: I'm not able to debug the application which starts from the target shell. My intention is to debug the application which is inside the shell script. Any suggestion on how to debug the application which runs from the script. However, I can able to debug the application by attaching the debugger "Attach to debugger Process". Also by debugging the application if I set remote executable as application instead of target shell script.

How to do it: Create a normal Qnx Qconn launch configuration. Select ANY project and ANY binary in the Main page (this is required to satisfy IDE checks, these settings won't be used). In Upload tab, select "Use executable on target", and type script name (or use browse), Script must have +x set already. Specify script arguments in Arguments tab. Now you can run it. It will print output on console. If you want to save output to a file, you can use Common tab to set it. The other "trick" related to that, if you doing system profiling and your script is a test for already running processes, you can setup launch configuration for this test script as describe above but add Kernel Logging Tool to capture the log associated with the test.

It is a web service that would allow to browse documentation using regular web browser. You can start eclipse infocenter from command line: (for IDE 4.6) cd <IDE installation folder, parent of eclipse folder> cp eclipse/qde eclipse/eclipse #this needed because otherwise tool would not recognize installation folder java -cp eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.help.base_3.3.1.v20070813_33x.jar:eclipse/plugins/org.mortbay.jetty_5.1.11. v200706111724.jar org.eclipse.help.standalone.Infocenter -command start -eclipsehome ./eclipse/ -port 7000 -vmargs -Xmx512M To access it: http://<your host>:7000/help/index.jsp (assuming you run on 7000) Also see general eclipse instructions here: http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/reference/misc/help_infocenter.html?view=co Mon, 01 Mar 2010 20:50:51 GMT http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post48559 Elena Laskavaia 2010-03-01T20:50:51Z post48440: Qnx IDE: Tip of the Day #24: Target Deactivation http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post48440 If you happen to have many targets (target - computer/boards that runs Neutrino) it clutters the target navigator and other tools when you need to select one. You can "deactivate" ones you are not using - to do that open Navigator view (Window->Show View->Other...->General->Navigator) and you can see your targets as projects there. Select ones you want to de-activate and close them (right click and select Close Project). If you now switch back to Target Navigator it would be gone from the list. To re-active select Open Project from Navigator view.

However IDE can help you to automate build of certain specific configurations. For example if you build for two platforms x86 and arm and it is determined by make variable (which you normally set in command line), there are two ways you can automate it in IDE - using Build Configurations and using Make Targets. To create new Make Target right click on your project and select Make Targets->Create... You can give it a name and you can optionally define a make command line. You can build a target using Make Target->Build... To create a new Build Configuration use menu Build Configuration->Manage... It gives you a lot more option than make target. To override make command use C/C++ Build make tab. You can also change Environment Variables and some other aspects on Build Configuration. By default "Build Project" command would build an active configuration (your choice). You also can build All or Selected configuration from project context menu. For example I can create "x86-debug" configuration with a make command: make CPULIST=x86 DEBUG=-gdwarf-2 OPTIMIZE_TYPE=NONE Make Targets and Build Configuration can work nicely together if you use "default" make command in the Make Target definition and only redefine the actual "target". It will use settings from an "Active" configuration.

The answer is Ctrl+3: press this key combination, then start typing a word. The IDE will present a list of matching commands, menus, views, perspectives, preference pages, wizards, and more that match what you typed. Just select what you need from the list and voila!

I get it now--it must be the exact literal "string_prompt" inside the curly braces. My assumption was that this was a string prompt that was configurable so that you could actually provide the prompt text. If I use the value ${string_prompt} exactly as written, it stops and asks as it should. Anything else grabs a variable of that name. --Andy Mon, 23 Nov 2009 18:03:59 GMT http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post42403 Andy Gryc 2009-11-23T18:03:59Z post42399: RE: Qnx IDE: Tip of the Day #5: Prompt for command line arguments http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post42399 If you're trying to get a launch to prompt for command-line arguments, I've had success with: ${string_prompt} In the "Arguments" field. -David -----Original Message----- From: Andy Gryc [mailto:community-noreply@qnx.com] Sent: November 23, 2009 12:24 PM To: tips-ide Subject: Re: Qnx IDE: Tip of the Day #5: Prompt for command line arguments Hi Elaina, I can't seem to get this tip to work.

To run your program with runtime error detection you don't have to recompile it (but it has to be debug version to see source code associations). To do this add Memory Analysis tool in the Tools tab of Launch Configuration and select Switch to this tool's perspective checkbox. When program run you will see new session created in Session view of Memory Analysis perspective. Double click on session to open it and switch to Errors tab. To try it out you can create Example project (New->Example...->QNX Example Project - Detecting Runtime Errors) it has a code of application with bugs in it. Mudflap Integration of IDE allows you to view errors detected by mudflap in convenient way with groping, sorting and source navigation. Mudflap is gcc instrumentation and runtime library (since QNX SDP 6.4.1) that instrument your code to watch for buffer overflows and other typical memory corruption errors. To use it you need to compile your code with -fmudflapth option. To use IDE integration add Mudlfap tool in the Tools tab of Launch Configuration. The difference between two tools: - Memory Analysis has more false negative, but very little false positive (i.e. it misses real errors, but do not report incorrect ones). Mudlfap does the opposite - it has more false positives (i.e. report errors which are not correct) - Memory Analysis does not require recompilation and has low performance impact Thu, 23 Jul 2009 17:00:50 GMT http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post34440 Elena Laskavaia 2009-07-23T17:00:50Z post31971: Qnx IDE: Tip of the Day #20: Transferring Files to a Target http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post31971 There are few ways how you can transfer files files from host to target (and visa versa) using IDE. The method of transfer depends on conditions and connection method. If you have network connection and qconn is running on a target: * Target File System Navigator (TFSN) View ** allows to drag and drop files from host (IDE and other programs) to the target folder and other way around ** allows to use cut & paste commands ** allows rename and delete files on target, launch file on target from TFSN and open target files in the IDE editor ** Note: deleting files on target has a bug in IDE 4.6 and earlier - descriptor leak. If you delete lots of big files to get rid of leaks (which prevent space to be reclaimed) you need to close/re-open target project or re-start qconn * Launch ** Binaries and Shared Libraries can be uploaded automatically when you launch qnx qconn launch configuration, you can also launch fake binary such as "ls" just to transfer the libraries from host to target. Unfortunately it does work only for shared libraries, other files cannot be transfered using this launch configuration. ** If you want to automate file transfer while launching, you can write external script to upload and/or download files, then use Group Launch to combine script launch and binary launch into one sequential launch. If you have serial connection: * You can use Terminal view to transfer image to a target, using "Transfer Image to Target" action, which is available from action bar of Terminal view * You can upload and debug and a binary using Pdebug launch configuration TFTP Server * IDE can run TFTP server for you, you can configure target client to grab files from host from selected directories. To run the server open "TFTP Server" view. JTAG Device * If you have compatible jtag device you can upload and debug image using GDB Hardware Debugging launch configuration Wed, 17 Jun 2009 14:51:46 GMT http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post31971 Elena Laskavaia 2009-06-17T14:51:46Z post29452: Qnx IDE: Tip of the Day #19: Debugger - Breakpoint actions http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post29452 Debugger supports user defined breakpoint actions. Actions can be: sound, log entry, resume after N seconds, external command or gdb command. You can specify several actions. To do that right click on existing breakpoint in the Breakpoints view and select Properties... In Action tab you can define new actions (at the bottom) and attach them to current breakpoint (at the top). For example you can define a breakpoint action: when breakpoint hit, "print x" (gdb command to print variable x) and resume. Thu, 14 May 2009 15:24:11 GMT http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post29452 Elena Laskavaia 2009-05-14T15:24:11Z post28639: Qnx IDE: Tip of the Day #18: Linked Resources http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post28639 You can create Eclipse "Links" in your project which can point to other locations outside of workspace or project location itself. They are similar to unix soft links. You cannot create relative links, however you can create links based on "Linked Resources Variables" (starting from IDE 4.6). For example you have a project aaa and you want to link output folder to somewhere else in file system, for example to /opt/sources/output, we will create variable SOURCE_DIR pointing to /opt/sources that all projects can share. * Select "New Folder..." * Click "Advanced..." * Check "Link to folder in the file system", * Select "Variables..." * Click "New..." * Enter name and location in file system for this variable, click OK. * Select "Extend..." and select "output" folder (from /opt/sources). Now your link would look like SOURCE_DIR/output. Click Finish. To enter or view list of Linked Resources Variables open Window->Preferences->General->Workspace->Linked Resources. Links structure is stored in .project file in the root of your project. Linked Resource Variables are user specific and stored with local workspace settings. Read more about project structure example here: http://community.qnx.com/sf/wiki/do/viewPage/projects.ide/wiki/ProjectsBuildAndIDE Mon, 04 May 2009 17:12:58 GMT http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post28639 Elena Laskavaia 2009-05-04T17:12:58Z post28252: Qnx IDE: Tip of the Day #17: Group Launch http://community.qnx.com/sf/go/post28252 New IDE 4.6 comes with another launch configuration type called "Group Launch". This allows you to launch several processes at the same time (for example server and client). You can also combine different launch configurations, such run Local script, then run Kernel Tracing logging, then run Remote process.

This view is not displayed in the System Profiler perspective by default, but can be shown using Window->Show View->Other->System Profiler->Full Trace Event Log. Similar to the original Trace Event Log view, the Full Trace Event Log view displays a list of events from your trace file, reacts to the selection you've made in the Timeline and allows you to filter its results. The difference is that the Full Trace Event Log display the events for the entire event log and allows you to easily scroll through these events. The original Trace Event Log restricted you to scrolling through a fixed set of events. The intention is to eventually merge these two views together into a single log view during a future release. Feel free to give the Full Trace Event Log view a try when working with System Profiler and let us know what you think.

This allows you to position them outside of the main window and on different monitors. For example, you could detach the Outline view from the C/C++ perspective and place it on a different monitor to give you additional space to display your source code. To detach a view, simply right-click on its header and select detach. Once a view is detached, you can attach it to the main window using the same steps.

The only thing you really need is the binary with debug information on the host side. If you cannot run it from Qnx IDE you can run it on target side with special options and attach to it. To run from IDE: - If you don't use IDE to build yoru binary create simple makefile project and drop your binary in there - Select it, right click and select Run as QNX Application Dialog... - Select target, Environment, Arguments - Switch to Tools tab and Add Memory Analysis tooling, Enable switch to this tool's perspective - When app started, double click on "session" in Sessions view of Memory Analysis perspective, it would open an graphical editor - Let your app run, maybe execute a test that makes it leak memory - Now switch to Settings tab and press get Leaks button - Switch to Errors tab and you should see Leaks errors there if you have any. Click on error line to see allocation backtrace. This object has no references and has not being freed. To run on target: - Run your app from target terminal as: rm /tmp/traces.rmat; LD_PRELOAD=librcheck.so MALLOC_CTHREAD=1 MALLOC_TRACE=1 MALLOC_FILE=/tmp/traces.rmat ./your_app - On the host create Attach configuration instead of regular one (from Profile... menu) - Enabled Memory Analysis tooling and make sure that it uses same file name in Advanced Settings as MALLOC_FILE var - When you start it would ask to select a process from the list - The rest as the same as above If you need more details please consult User Documentation.

So if you want to try new version you can do it just by downloading and unzipping ide archive in any folder. IDE tools settings are configured by setting environment variables. See installation instructions here: http://community.qnx.com/sf/wiki/do/viewPage/projects.ide/wiki/Builds_Tau_Integration When you try new IDE, especially development build, make sure to use new workspace. If you want to use your primary workspace make sure you back it up because there is no guarantee that it would work with previous versions of IDE (it may upconvert it). Don't forget to post any trial problems on IDE General forum.

You pick virtual memory of which process you want to look into and launch Debugger in attach mode and attach to selected process. Open Memory view (Windows->Show View->Other... -> Debug->Memory) and create a "monitor" with any Virtual address (you can also use names of global variables). You can pick between different renderings, like hex, dec or char.

To do that select two profiling sessions in Profiler Sessions view, right click and select "Compare" from context menu. Resulting session would show diff time instead of absolute time for all functions.

Then from within the Debug Tab in the IDE we just point to this one directory as the repository for all our libraries. Typically we only need to run the script once after the first build and only need to re-run it if we add a new library. Here is the script. Note that the version number for our libraries is always '1'. #!/bin/sh if [ ! "$1" ]; then echo "no directory supplied (expect module directory)" exit 1 fi reldir=$1 trgdir=debug echo "$1" # 2. Find the SO lib and copy it to the current directory for i in `find $reldir -name '*.so' -print` do # (echo $i; cp $i $trgdir/`basename $i`.1; echo copying $i) (echo $i; ln -sf ../$i $trgdir/`basename $i`.1; echo copying $i) done Cheers Robert -----Original Message----- From: Elena Laskavaia [mailto:community-noreply@qnx.com] Sent: Thursday, April 02, 2009 11:32 AM To: tips-ide Subject: Qnx IDE: Tip of the Day #10: Remote debugging with shared library Remote debugging is not an easy thing, and remove debugging with shared libraries is more complected. To do successful debugging with shared library (i.e. to set breakpoints in libraries and view sources) you need the following things: - create launch configuration for debugging - have set of binary and all libraries available on target. Library name should be SONAME, i.e. name that binary required, not the name of the file. Usually they different by .so postfix. I.e. compiler would create libaaa.so and actual name is libaaa.so.1. Loader needs second name. Linker needs first. If you using IDE to upload (Upload tab of launch configuration) it will rename all libraries appropriately. If not - you have to take care of it yourself. Also you need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable in Environment tab if libraries are not in standard path (path is on target). - set of binary and libraries with debug info available on the host. Debugger has to know where they are. Set binary in the Main tan and Library paths in the Debugger tab - Shared Libraries. Library name MUST be SOMENAME on the host, i.e. libaaa.so.1, otherwise debugger would not find it. If you using IDE upload it will also take care of renaming host libraries, if not you have to make sure they are renamed. The better approach for debugging would be actually not to use soname at all when you building the library for debugging (controlled by linker option). - sources for binary and library available on host.

To open Properties view use Window->Show View->Properties.

You can use this file to browse the events in a text editor, or import into a spreadsheet program that supports the CSV format (such as Excel or OpenOffice Calc). To do so, select your kernel trace in the Project Explorer, right-click and select System Profiler->Save Formatted Events to CSV file... Additionally, copying a range of selected events from the Trace Event Log, will copy the events formatted for the CSV format.

IDE offers a way not to type common patterns over and over, by using only a keyword describing the pattern. For example you can type stderr<Ctrl-Space> in your C editor and it should automatically expand to "fprintf(stderr, I);" where I is a cursor position, which saved you typing extra 10 symbols. You can go further and modify "stderr" template to include string and \n into it, to have this result: fprintf(stderr, "I\n"); To do that open Window->Preferences->C/C++->Editor->Context Assist->Templates. Find and select stderr template, click Edit... and change to fprintf(stderr, "${cursor}\n"); This also gives you a list of possible template you can use as well. If <Ctrl-Space> does not show you templates it may be disabled, to configure what is show on first and second keystroke see Window->Preferences->C/C++->Editor->Context Assist->Advanced.

When working with the Timeline, it's often advantageous to hide the processes and threads that aren't relevant to your investigation. To quickly filter owners without having to use the Filters view, simply select one or more owners and press the DEL key.
