signal SIGCONT
« on: July 31, 2006, 01:57:25 AM »

Generally when i want to debug a program spawned from another program with execv
i put a pause  statement in program to debug as well as install a signal handler for SIGCONT
then after i attach to spawned process with gdb   i can send a signal SIGCONT in gdb to continue

How can i send a "signal SIGCONT" to a process that i have attached to in VisualSlickEdit 11.0
just like i can in gdb.

Thanks for any help

From the SlickEdit command line, you can use "debug_send_command signal SIGCONT" to send the signal command through GDB to the process you are attached to.
