1999.12.10 03:02 "tiffcp dumping core with -c lzw", by Tom Kacvinsky


I finally got gdb recompiled and did a backtrace on the core fiel generated by tiffcp when using -c lzw. It turns out that the lzw code has been no been wrapped in #ifdef LZW_SUPPORT... #endif blocks.

I'll work on this tomorrow.

Also, you might find this interesting: Sun's C compiler will not write out line number information to object files when run with -g. Compaq's C compiler will, as does gnu C. This "feature" of Sun's C compiler really diminishes the usefulness of gdb. Oh well...
