    I have a working project with the code showing and an exe file being produced. When I try to click on the debug menu button I am asked if I would like to enter debugging information, then the code is recompiled with the debugging information entered. The help utility says that there should no be a display where the debugging tools (backtrace, gdb commands, etc) can be used. This screen never shows up! Where is the debugger is this environment?

    Another question: this project is a DOS project, and this exe file is looking for an argc and argv[] that would normally be put into the command line following the exe file when entered straight from the DOS command line window. When I manually put this into DOS window (*.exe file1 file2) the program works! But there should be way to enter these parameters through the development window for the project. Explain this process.
