#16883 Debugging?
10 months, 2 weeks ago Edited by Jason on Nov. 30, 2018, 8:43 p.m. Reason: Initial post

Not sure if this was already discussed at some point but I was wondering how debugging is in this language? Are there any specific features like stack traces that the language outputs for debugging purposes? What about debugger support? I know, for example, nim transpiles (if that's the correct term) to C so you can use any standard c debugger. Does odin do the same? If not, would this mean a standalone debugger for odin would have to be created?

it's currently built on a LLVM backend and debug info is added to llvm.

This means that there should be most of the same debug capabilities as a normal C++ program
