Summary0003555: .ocamldebug init file would be nice
DescriptionFull_Name: mattias waldau
OS: linux/winxp
Submission from: (

It would be nice if ocamldebug instructions like

directory ~/home/src/


bigstep 100000

could be placed in a file called .ocamlinit which is placed in the local

Then ocamldebug can read this file on startup.

(I currently have a project were some files are located at ../ and each time I
to add the directory, ocamldebug exists with an error.)

This feature is still wanted.

Maybe, you should set smallstep to 1000 and bigstep to 100000 default for cygwin, since otherwise, ocamldebug very seldom works.

This feature has been implemented in branch "release311".
A file named ".ocamldebug" is searched first in the current directory,
and then in the home directory (using Sys.getenv "HOME"). If such a
file is found, its content is evaluated in the debugger (discarding any
line that begins with "#").
