Debug tests

To be run

The below tests have not be run yet. Once run, they can be moved to the 'completed' section below. These tests are suggestions of what should be tested, but are not exhaustive.

When someone decides to run some tests, they should put their name next to the section selected. This will avoid multiple people running the same tests.

Regression tests

    • Sanity tested with GDB 7.5 and works as expected.

Reverse Debugging

  • Launch a local debug session in all-stop mode (reverse debugging is not supported in non-stop)
