Debugging symbols

Trying to debug I got “no debugging symbols found”. I googled a bit and removed the -s from

  
LDFLAGS = $(LIB_PATHS_FLAGS) -s  

in the makefile and hey: now it works. This option seems to remove the debugging information when linking, if I got it right.

On the other hand I am (was?) pretty sure that I have debugged other test oF applications before :? Does it make sense to have this -s flag in the makefiles? Does anyone know more about it?

yeah, i thought that flag was only in release. it’s supposed to reduce the size of the final executable by not including unneeded symbols

hm, far as I can see the same linker flags are applied to all targets.
