- Subject: Breaking into a program before the main function
I am writing a Win32 application using the Cygwin development tools. I
have a problem in that the program dies immediately when I try to run
it. I've tried debugging the program using GDB. I set a breakpoint at
the beginning of the main function (WinMain). The program exits with a
return code of 0x1 before it even hits the breakpoint. I have no idea
where to set a breakpoint so I can figure out what is going on.
Is there any way I can cause GDB to break into the program immediately
when it start or right before it exits?
