I’ve been trying to get away from these small “how to” posts, but it took me a while to find a solution for this so it feels worthwhile to do a quick write up on it.
I was struggling to pipe in stdin to some C programs I wanted to debug using lldb from VS Code. After much Googling I finally found a solution and wanted to post a complete example.
The below is a stock lldb debug task config (generated by VS Code) that should go in your .vscode/launch.json file.
I made two changes:
1) Add a property called
This allows you to feed lldb commands in used to setup the debugger. You will need to modify where it says
with a path relative to the
cwd defined in this same configuration.
2) Remove the
"externalConsole": true line
I tried piping in some input through the
args property but it wasn’t reading it.
If anyone has a better solution feel free to share, happy debugging.
