    debug dev-c++

    im trying to debug some code so i can see whats going on. i set a breakpoint and hit debug but i keep getting this popup that says

    Code:
    your project does not have enough debugging information, do you want to enable debugging and rebuild your project?
    i click yes it builds it and i hit debug again and i keep getting the same popup. what gives?
    what am i doing wrong?

    It happens to me too sometimes. Doesn't restarting Dev-C++ help?

    Dev-C++ is also a C compiler.
    nope
    Last time it happened to me I just started debugging manually

    The reason for it is unknown, but I put my money on Bloodshed. The DevC++ project was/is left unfinished. If you check the help files, most of it is not even there. You could try looking under project settings or compiler options, but if you run a single source file you get no problem debugging it, it only seems to cause a poblem when you are attempting to debug a project. Code::blocks, also by bloodshed does not however have this issue

    I wonder why did the same company start making a new IDE, if they would've just fixed some little bugs and update Dev-C++ a bit, it would be the ultimate IDE.

    Plus it has a good name , much better than Code::Blocks, because when you search that on google, most of the results are about some blocks of code.

    Because they had made a lot of versions of Dev, form 4.80 to 4.992 which is the latest version. It was seen as a dead project, and they basicly moved on to bigger and better things.

    And yes, code::blocks is ok, but takes a little while to configure

    Don't make me laugh. I've tried it. Dev-C++ is far better than Code::Blocks even when Code::Blocks is the only one being developed!

    Yes well that is what I have read. But to be honest maxorator I agree with you. DevC++ is far better than code::blocks. I have it, but rarely use it

    I don't think they like those compilers. They just use them.

    BTW I hate Visual Studio, it is crap. I haven't tried Borland.
