The title says mostly all.
I have a XS module (Math::Int128) which I want to debug on Windows using some C debugger.
I have installed the latest Strawberry perl (5.18.1 for x64) and the gdb binary from here (syphilis, thanks for the pointer) and compiled the module with OPTIMIZE="-g -O2".
With gdb running under Linux/Unix, I could set a breakpoint for a function on a DLL and gdb would set it once the library is loaded but that doesn't seem to work on Windows.
I am not able to set breakpoints on functions inside perl.exe either. I know, the executable is compiled without debugging information but on Unix, gdb would be able to set a breakpoint at the function anyway.
Currently, I am in the process of recompiling Strawberry perl with debugging enabled, but in the meantime, I would really appreciate if somebody could give me some practical advice on the matter.
