Amiga Events : Spotless Released
Posted by alfkil on 2020/4/28 17:56:13 (421 reads) News by the same author
Amiga Events

Spotless is a source debugging tool for Amiga. Distinguishing qualities compared to similar software is simplicity and completeness. Spotless is written in c++ and the code is open at this point for public inspection. Spotless has a ReAction frontend, but also comes as a standalone cli tool. In this case it is called SimpleDebug.

Is this a successor to or a rewrite of db101?

It is a complete rewrite. The name is intentional and significant. :)

Thank you for the debugger.

 Re: ?
I'm sure you will. But it will not be a conceptual break, rather incidental flux. :)

Nice. We need a good debugger. I'll have to try this sometime.

I do wish we could use a remote debugger too, though, for graphics driver development.

@Hans

The latest version is able to load and debug itself, including symbols. It will not give sensible output for c++ classes, but at least it doesn't crash, and it does stepwise execution as expected.

It should be possible to set up Spotless (SimpleDebug) for remote debugging with time. The structure of the software is much better than the previous debugger (db101), so extending and molding the concept should be straightforward.

 Only OS4?
Is it for OS4 only or could it be adapted to work with OS 3 68k?

@alfkil

Thanks for this. Thats the way i am used to debug. Tried the included "test" programm and it works. But i don't know how to use it with my own programs and sources.

I found a reproducable Bug:

- Start Spotless
- Select "Switch public screen" from Menu

It switches to a public Screen but the "Load" Button becomes disabled and the "Start" Button enabled. Clicking the "Start" Button let the Grim Reaper appear. Switching Back to Workbench shows that the Button state is still wrong.
