Information About a Frame#

See GDB* documentation.

info args#

Test numba_dpex/tests/debugging/test_info.py:test_info_args.

Note

Requires Numba 0.55 or higher. In previous versions info args always returns No arguments..

Example#

Source code numba_dpex/examples/debug/side-by-side.py:

14def common_loop_body(param_a, param_b):
15    param_c = param_a + numba.float32(10)  # Set breakpoint here
16    param_d = param_b * numba.float32(0.5)
17    result = param_c + param_d
18    return result

Debug session:

$ NUMBA_OPT=0 gdb-oneapi -q python
...
(gdb) break side-by-side.py:25

info locals#

Test numba_dpex/tests/debugging/test_info.py:test_info_locals.

Note

Requires Numba 0.55 or higher.

Run the debugger with NUMBA_OPT=0:
