In my recent experience with developing for embedded systems using the
KDevelop IDE i felt the need for debugger options to be tied to configure
options (or any other build manager). Let me explain...
When developing for embedded systems typically apart from the usual debug and
release build, there are debug for ram and debug for flash. ie. the code may
be executed in RAM or in ROM and the linker script is differrent in each
Second, we typically use a gdbinit script and this script is again differrent
for RAM and ROM (where it first needs to program the flash before starting
I currently use the cmake build system (the lack of a cmake plugin requires me
to manually reconfigure the build) and i can switch the linker scripts but i
also need to edit project options to use the other gdbinit.
So, would it be possible to link the debugger settings with the build system
settings, assuming that the cmake plugin in future will allow to have
multiple build folders/settings similar to the automake plugin.
Ps. I really long for being able to checkin the project files into a VCS for
