Title: Debugger Doesn't "Jump" to Current Line
Post by: slikuser on May 20, 2009, 03:58:23 pm
I am using SlikEdit Core 3.4.0 with Eclipse 3.4.1. I am writing C++ code on Windows under Cygwin and debugging with GDB 6.3.5. When I step into a function, SlikEdit doesn't automatically jump to the "current" line -- rather it just opens at the top of the file. Double clocking on the callstack sometimes takes me to the current line (and sometimes not). I am evaluating SlikEdit Core for our team, and this bug makes the tool pretty much a non-starter. The default Eclipse editor doesn't have this problem.

BTW: like others I was surprised at the lack of "mouse over" support for variable values, and right clicking to add to watch. These features are a "must" IMHO.

This problem has been hotfixed for 3.4.0.  Close Eclipse and backup your ECLIPSEDIR/plugins/com.slickedit.core_3.4.0/SlickEditCore.jar file.  Save the attached version to the same directory and start up Eclipse.  You should not see this behavior anymore.

Among loads of other improvements, these features have already been implemented for the upcoming SlickEdit Core 3.5.0 for C/C++, Java, and PHP.  Perhaps using the Variables and Expressions views until then might work for you.

Hope this helps,
