Detaching dbx From a Process

When you have finished debugging the program, use the detach command to detach dbx from the program. The program then resumes running independently of dbx, unless you specify the -stop option when you detach it.

To detach a process from running under the control of dbx:

(dbx) detach

You can detach a process and leave it in a stopped state while you temporarily apply other /proc-based debugging tools that might be blocked when dbx has exclusive access. For example:

(dbx) oproc=$proc           # Remember the old process ID
(dbx) detach -stop
(dbx) /usr/proc/bin/pwdx $oproc
(dbx) attach $oproc

For more information, see detach Command.
