GDB .... no debugging symbols found

Hug
Hello everybody

I try to use gdb to debug my program
but i have this message :

---------------------------

When I type bt I have not informations, just that :

#5 0x420158d4 in __libc_start_main () from /lib/i686/libc.so.6
------------------------------------------------
not very helpful ;)
I can copy my Makefile to show and tell me where I am wrong:
------------------------------------------------------
### PROJECT MAKEFILE ##

EXEC := gwrap

# compiler flags
export CXX := g++

RM := rm -f

# files
SRCS := $(wildcard *.cpp)
OBJS := $(SRCS:.cpp=.o)
ALIBS := $(foreach lib,$(LIBS),$(lib)/$(lib).a)

# Windows specific
ifeq ($(OS), Windows_NT)
RM := del
EXEC := $(EXEC).exe
ALIBS := $(subst /,\,$(ALIBS))
endif

# link

# library archive

$(MAKE) $@ -C $(*D)

# depend
..PHONY: depend
depend:
$(CXX) -MM $(CXXFLAGS) $(CPPFLAGS) $(SRCS) >$@
-include depend

# clean
mostlyclean:
$(RM) $(OBJS) $(EXEC) depend
clean:

Thanks a lot

This is off-topic here. Please consider posting to a newsgroup
dedicated to the tool you're using or to the OS you're on.

Sure, this group is not the most suitable group for this question even
though you suppose C/C++ guys should have more experience on gdb or make.
Anyway, for saving your time, I try to answer this question here.

insert the following lines:
%.o:
$(CXX) $(CXXFLAGS) -c $<

If I am using Borland Builder and their IDE,
I never see a makefile. The same is true when
I am using Visual Studio C++.

Nowadays, with IDE's everywhere, why would people
have much experience with make?

Why do you assume people have experience with
gdb? After all, isn't Microsoft C++ the world
leader and if you use their product you have no
need for anything else {heavy sarcasm here}.

BTW, please don't top-post. You've read the
articles and know the policy.

You couldn't see a makefile doesn't mean other people are same as you.

Looks like Windows world is all of your world :-)

Seems like you believe that everybody should be using gdb.
Do you read what you write?

Actually, my world consists of 80% embedded systems,
5% Unix/Linux, and 10% Microsoft windows.

My compilers consist of:
Metaware High C/C++, Greenhills, ARM Ltd., Tasking,
Intel, Microsoft, Borland and GNU.

I just hate when people are not open-minded and
believe that everybody in the world has their
platform, or are ignorant and believe that their
platform is the only one that exists.
BTW, please don't top-post. You've read the

Thanks for complying to the policy.
Now, read the FAQ. See below.

Do you always need to have the last word in a
discussion?
