  1. help for dbx...

    Hi all,

    I am trying to debug a process using the dbx command. When I gave "dbx
    -p " it gives the following output as below...

    dbx version 7.3 MR 55458_Apr30_MR Apr 30 1999 13:44:41
    dbx Warning: Unknown processor type 0xf, assuming this is not an R8000
    Unknown processor type 0xf, assuming R4000.
    (dbx)
    (dbx)cont
    Process terminated
    (dbx)


    After giving the "cont" command it doesn't give any output and simply
    returns to the dbx prompt after termination of the process.

    The OS version is IRIX 6.5.23m. I am not able to figure out whether it
    is a problem with the dbx version or else the process itseft is not
    generating a stack dump.

    If someone knows the reason for the same please help me out with this.

    Thanks and Regards,
    SAMPATH

    Can't say I know the cause for sure, but it could be that it's simply a
    too old dbx version.

    >dbx version 7.3 MR 55458_Apr30_MR Apr 30 1999 13:44:41


    On my 6.5.24 system I have:
    dbx version 7.3.6 (95791_Apr06 MR) Apr 6 2004 10:33:31
