Debugging C++ (Visual Studio) source code with “.tcl” file

Post by polimeruvijay » Thu May 17, 2018 6:02 am

Dear OpenSEES Community Members

When I run the input file using the opensees executable, the program is not giving me the values I expected, there is some problem within the source code. Hence, I have no way but to understand the functioning of the source code, line by line using break points in visual studio.

I want to know, Is there any way to debug my ".tcl" input file, line by line using break points in the source code.

I found one answer similar to my problem (link) on this stackoverflow.com, but it is written for command line arguments, I need for ".tcl" input file.

Link: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/298 ... 713#298713

Is there somewhere I can link my ".tcl" input file, to the source code and then debug in the visual studio.

Thank you very much...

you have to build a debug version of OpenSees in VS as we do not release a debug version .. running the released version will not work as there is no data in the exe with which the debugger can use.
