debug mode
« on: June 07, 2008, 00:16:56 »
Is there a way to set LWJGL into debug mode and let it execute a checkGLErrors() after each gl-call without recompiling it? That would be great, since it tends to be a nightmare to debug gl-errors when the error is only thrown with swapBuffers. I have to place a checkGLErrors() at each suspicious line in my whole code.

in platform_build.xml#generate-opengl you can comment in or out the line that says <arg value="-Ageneratechecks"/>. Once you have build that, you can do an 'ant jars' which will create lwjgl.jar in the libs folder. Rename this as lwjgl-debug.jar lwjgl.jar as appropriate. The use one or the other on the command line.

ok, thanks. Would be nice to have binary download on the download-page for the debug jar.

I tried that. Unfortunately the ant-script (build.xml) seems to be made for apt-based linux distros. I am on SuSE-Linux, which is rpm-based. Well, I can install apt even on SuSE, and I did it. But it doesn't compile, since the apt-parameters don't seem to be the same. Could you possibly provide a download of the debug-lwjgl.jar? That would help me a lot.

Thanks.

I'm sorry, where does apt-get fit into the picture ?
lwjgl is purely ant based when compiling, except for the native part which assumes you have the dependencies installed.
For the debug jar you need only compile the java stuff:

Code: [Select]
svn co https://java-game-lib.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/java-game-lib/trunk/LWJGL lwjgl
cd lwjgl
mkdir bin
<edit platform_build/build-generator.xml>
ant jars

I don't know much about ant. Could you possibly attach a modified ant script, so that only the debug lwjgl.jar is compiled?

When I try to execute ant as you say, I get this output:

aha!

you have to make sure that the JDK is on you path - you are unable to run APT - Annotation Processing Tool, what we use to generate the source code for some of the classes - it has nothing to do with apt-get :)

Thanks. That worked.

But still. Wouldn't it make sense to provide a binary download for the debug jar?

well, since you're the first that actively wanted that, not really :)
We might do some restructuring in the future, to have a single download instead of 4 - when we get to that, I'll look into supplying (and building) a debug release too.

Fair enough :). Thanks.
