Description

When generating builds via CMake in Debug mode on Linux there are no debugging symbols in the bins or libs.

History

I'll check that tomorrow, we have to keep symbols in Release mode in some cases (debian packaging for example) and always in Debug. I suspect I changed default behavior in one of last changes.

You did, in nel.cmake you added:

IF(WITH_SYMBOLS)
  SET(NL_RELEASE_CFLAGS "${NL_RELEASE_CFLAGS} -g" 
ELSE(WITH_SYMBOLS)
...

The notable exclusion there is NL_DEBUG_CFLAGS. I added it locally and kicked off a clean rebuild but that takes time and I had to go home for the day. I'll take a look later tonight to verify that is all it was.

Yes, you're right, I forgot to readd -g for NL_DEBUG_CFLAGS :) Well done !

WITH_SYMBOLS is to force symbols even in Release mode, the problem before that when using /Zi and /DEBUG under Windows is that client had a lot of debug information and was bigger. Now there should be no debug symbols in Release mode be default.

Release -> stripped under all platforms (no symbol)
Debug -> not stripped under all platforms (all symbols)

-DWITH_SYMBOLS=ON -> all symbols under all platforms and configurations
