Having trouble running/debugging C code

runner
workspace
debug

#1

I have already tried reading the tutorial on how to run/debug, but I can’t still get this working for me.

When I try to debug my code, I only get errors. If I try to run just my main.c, it tells me that there is an undefined reference to a function (a function from my static library) – But I know it works, because I have compiled and ran this program locally before trying to do it in c9.

If I try to use run/debug on my executable I get a long error message that I can’t even really understand.

I have tried including my library filename in the commands input box, as well as trying to use ‘.L -lft’ at the end in an attempt to link the library.

I’m not really sure what else to try. I really love c9, but I hate having to download my code every time I want to debug it. I know gdb is available in the terminal, but I prefer lldb/llvm to gdb because of the GUI and I’ve already tried (and failed) to install lldb into my workspace. I know your graphical debugger works with gdb, so I’d be fine using gdb with the c9 gui if I could get it working…

Any suggestions/advice? Thanks.
