I've been having a lot of problems with previous versions of MacGDBp so I don't use it too often. I just tried again and updated to version 1.3.0. Immediately on start I see some text corruption in the variable list and in the code pane.
http://skitch.com/sven/bxhcy/gdbp-disconnected-9000-sven and http://skitch.com/sven/bxhm6/gdbp-disconnected-9000-sven-1

After stepping over the include here http://skitch.com/sven/bxhm6/gdbp-disconnected-9000-sven-2, the variable list goes empty. And stepping some more crashes the program.

The variable list looses all content

Added the images as attachments. Forget the links in the original comment.

I noticed this, too. I think it has to do with the UTF8 string encoding going over the network. I don't have time to really investigate this today, but I've uploaded a build that reverts the changes I made to the network layer. Can you test this and see how this does?

That version seems to work much better, thanks!

If we only could get watch expressions, interactive variable inspection in the code pane and serch/filter for the variable list ... Well, I'd definitely pay for getting those features.

Can you please test build 32 and let me know how it works for you?

July 30, 2009 12:21 PM Sven Axelsson
It doesn't seem to work at all. I never get any source code display, and only some of the variables are shown. Stepping throught the code does work but is pretty useless without display.

No source code display

Same problem here. Garbled text in the code pane with the current 1.3 release. Build 25 seems to work, 32 doesn't. Same symptoms as Sven, there is a connection, stepping seems to work but no code is displayed.

Using PHP Version 5.2.6-1+lenny3 on Apache/2.2.9 (Debian) with Xdebug v2.0.4

PHP Version: 5.3.0

If people on this bug could please try the MacGDBp 1.4 beta to see if this issue has been resolved, that'd be great.

I compiled from source myself a while ago, so I'm already using 1.4b. Everything seems to be working fine now.

I did however get some trash after the code in the code pane at the initial load, but that disappeared after I stepped the first time.

Glad to hear it. The garbage data at the end of strings should be fixed now that I've switched out base64 decoders. I made a number of changes in the past few days so I'd recommend either pulling and rebuilding or downloading the pre-built version and testing with that. is tagged as 1.4-beta-1 in the git repo.

I'm calling this fixed. If you run into any new issues, please open a new bug.
