PetscSetDebugger

Sets options associated with the debugger.

Synopsis

#include "petscsys.h"   
PetscErrorCode  PetscSetDebugger(const char debugger[],PetscBool xterm)
Not Collective

Input Parameters

debugger - name of debugger, which should be in your path, usually "lldb", "dbx", "gdb", "idb", "xxgdb", "kdgb" or "ddd". Also, HP-UX supports "xdb", and IBM rs6000 supports "xldb".
xterm - flag to indicate debugger window, set to either PETSC_TRUE (to indicate debugger should be started in a new xterm) or PETSC_FALSE (to start debugger in initial window (the option PETSC_FALSE makes no sense when using more than one MPI process.)

Fortran Note

This routine is not supported in Fortran.
