Using debug()

Hi Geoff,

taglib version would be helpful.

What is your goal, 

1. To use debug() within taglib.
2. To use taglib's debug() within ATL's xs modules.
3. To write a xs module to use it within ATL's tests.

IIRC, taglib's debug() is technically for taglib's internal use, though I 
believe with a little work it can be used outside taglib (I have not 
tried this).

I suspect your cmake is more like:
cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ., should be good.

Have you checked the resulting binaries for debug symbols. Size is my quick check.

Subject: Using debug()

I'm the maintainer of the Perl interface to taglib, Audio::Taglib.

In the course of writing new tests for the Perl module, it would be helpful to me to be able to use the debug() function. I've configured with cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ., but to no avail. 

Could someone enlighten me? Thanks.
