crash handling

Estaba yo preguntándome esta tarde si sería posible lanzar de forma automática gdb cuando un programa cascara, sin necesidad de ponerse a depurar después, reproducir el bug, etc, al estilo del manejador de errores que instala Visual Studio en Windows que pregunta si se desea depurar la aplicación.

Me ha salido algo como esto (HTML horrible para el coloreado de sintaxis patrocinado por Vim):

#include <sys/types.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <signal.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

void attach_gdb(int signum)
    pid_t gdbpid;
    pid_t debuggee_pid = getpid();
    int gdb_exit_status;
    char pidbuf[100];
    char exebuf[100]; // should be safe unless PIDs reach ~90 digits ;P
    sprintf(pidbuf, "%d", debuggee_pid);
    sprintf(exebuf, "/proc/%d/exe", debuggee_pid);
    printf("Signal %d received. Attaching GDB to process. PID=%d\n", signum, debuggee_pid);

    if ((gdbpid = fork()) == 0)
        execlp("gdb", "gdb", exebuf, pidbuf, NULL);

    waitpid(gdbpid, &gdb_exit_status, 0); // hold on, we want to be debugged

void __attribute__((constructor)) setup_handler()
    struct sigaction sa, old_sa;
    sa.sa_handler = attach_gdb;
    // Register the handler for all actions which dump core by default
    sigaction(SIGSEGV, &sa, &old_sa);
    sigaction(SIGFPE, &sa, &old_sa);
    sigaction(SIGABRT, &sa, &old_sa);
    sigaction(SIGILL, &sa, &old_sa);
    sigaction(SIGQUIT, &sa, &old_sa);

Si se compila como librería dinámica y se enlaza a cualquiera de nuestros programas (o se precarga con LD_PRELOAD) lanza un gdb asociado al proceso al recibir cualquiera de las señales que causarían un core dump y terminación del programa :D.

¿Alguna idea para mejorarlo y que sea práctico? ¿Existe ya algo asi en un paquete Debian que hace mil cosas molonas más? (seguro que sí XD).

    Excellent blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free
    platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any tips? Many thanks!

    Purchasing an Epson printer is usually were the greatest financial savings
    are to be made when buying affordable inkjet cartridges, the rate difference from compatibles to the originals can be shocking, any person who asks what’s
    the best printer to buy so i could acquire inexpensive inks, Epson printers, as the Epson compatibles are generally the least expensive ink cartridges to get, if you
    want to only buy initial inks after that
    Kodak say they offer the most effective value original
    inks on the marketplace to day. Low quality ink can trigger damages
    to a machine by blocking it up with deposit that will certainly
    protect against the printer from working. We are concentrated on the consumer experience, and also because of this, exceed and also beyond to satisfy our
    clients. We just provide cartridges (inks as well as printer toners) that we have actually completely evaluated, for both print high
    quality as well as long life. It is true that we provide low-cost inks as well as economical
    printer toner cartridges, however discount rate inks does not suggest that
    you are compromising on top quality. We depend on word of mouth marketing as we operate really
    low margins, as well as it is our quality and service that
    establishes us in addition to your other ink vendors and also why
    we are able to provide our 100% Guarantee for 1 Year on all our value cartridges as well as
    a life time guarantee on our Premium cartridges.
