Here's the page on how to debug C++ exceptions using dbx. It omits my often repeated mantra about the
-g flag. For C++
-g currently turns off 'front-end' inlining. This usually results in a significant loss in performance, but a benefit in the code being easier to read without the inlining. If you are interested in debugging the same code that you get without
-g, or the faster code that does having inlining, then use the flag
-g0 when building the application.
