Sun Studio 12: Debugging a Program With dbx

Showing Complex Expressions

dbx also recognizes Fortran complex expressions.

To show a complex expression in dbx, type:

demo% cat ShowComplex.f
    z = ( 2.0, 3.0 )
demo% f95 -g ShowComplex.f
demo% dbx a.out
(dbx) stop in MAIN
(dbx) run
Running: a.out
(process id 10953)
stopped in MAIN at line 2 in file "ShowComplex.f"
    2       z = ( 2.0, 3.0 )
(dbx) whatis z
complex*8  z
(dbx) print z
z = (0.0,0.0)
(dbx) next
stopped in MAIN at line 3 in file "ShowComplex.f"
    3       END
(dbx) print z
z = (2.0,3.0)
(dbx) print z+(1.0,1.0)
z+(1,1) = (3.0,4.0)
(dbx) quit
