Wonderful, thought-provoking story. I'm beginning to see why people like Murakami.

Debugging Emacs hangs

May 20, 2004 - Categories: emacs
Run emacs in gdb, preferably from the src directory where you compiled emacs:
   $ cd ~/emacs-build/src
   $ gdb ./emacs

[There's a special .gdbinit file in that directory that defines handy emacs debugging commands.]

When it hangs, hit C-z or something to exit to the debugger (you can't use C-c like usual when debugging emacs, because emacs' standard .gdbinit file changes gdb's SIGINT handling to make C-g work properly on ttys).

Then look at a C backtrace ("backtrace") and lisp backtrace ("xbacktrace") to see what's up.

For more fun, do the above from another emacs session using emacs' `M-x gdb' command.

Allan T. Moster thinks that Bookpool is cool. Said shipping was free. Not sure if that applies to the Philippines.
