I would like a functionality similar to IPython embed where I can put a flag inside a .C macro to stop it running at that point and open a root prompt to check the variable values for debugging purposes. How can I achieve this ?
Thank you for your time
Hi @omartarif and welcome on the ROOT forum.
You can compile your macro in g++, as shown here
g++ demo1.cxx $(root-config --glibs --cflags --libs) -o demo1
To create an executable file, in order to use the gdb debugger add the option -g
g++ demo1.cxx $(root-config --glibs --cflags --libs) -o demo1 -g
the run your executable with gdb
You will enter gdb and use it. You can google tons of tutorials on how to use it.
Or you can just simply print on screen your variables in different point of your code.
