in reply to Trying to track a sleeping CGI request with gdb

Not knowing gdb, that should surely be

gdb /usr/bin/perl /path/to/cgi-bin/script.cgi 1234

Remember, perl is the executable. The script name and arguments for the script are arguments to perl.

( I thought 1234 was for the perl script, not for gdb, so I extrapolated incorrectly. )

    Yes, but gdb expects after the program name, a core dump file, or a pid.

    So to pass arguments to the executable, you need to run it from within gdb as such:

    $ gdb /usr/bin/perl ... .. (gdb) run /path/to/cgi-bin/script.cgi

    He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

      "--args" gdb option allows to pass arguments to the executable given a program X and list of parameters a b c: %gdb --args X a b c
