View Full Version : Help with segfault / gdb / c++

April 5th, 2007, 03:44 PM
An odd query, I guess. I'm not asking about programming principles, per se, more if someone could take a few minutes to look at the source code of my project:

and tell me why the program segfaults on line 59 of song.cpp if next_event_time is larger than 0.

Alternatively, if someone could tell me how to coax gdb into showing me more than:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

#5 0xb79f1ebc in __libc_start_main () from /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6
#6 0x0804ad81 in _start ()

(i.e., where in jdkmidi::MIDISequencer::GetNextEvent does the segfault occur?

Sorry about my inability to generalise this into a more readable example, but the complexity of the code is perhaps the reason for the bug.

At this point, type 'frame 0'. If you've got full debugging symbols in your code, this should print the line that caused the segfault.
