View Full Version : Problems with NSZombieEnabled

Apr 1, 2008, 12:38 AM
Hello there once again. Hopefully this question won't be something I'll end up answering myself again (or hopefully it will be?), but I don't think I'm gonna figure this out.

I've got NSZombieEnabled turned on and I'm trying to place GDB breakpoints like so according to some information I found about making use out of it: "fb -[_NSZombie init]", "fb -[_NSZombie release]", etc. However, GDB only seems to create pending breakpoints which are never resolved.

Any ideas?

try rbreak, the names of class methods might be getting mangled as far as gdb knows.

Nah, doesn't seem to work. So perplexing.

Is it possible that the way _NSZombie works has changed since the articles about using it were written? I know there must be other people here that use it, it seems to be an invaluable debugging tool.
