I recently started taking a look at the source code and I built vlc up on my mac. Right now, I have looked at the bug list and found things that I could do, but I have little clue as to how to start debugging on a terminal as I have mostly used IDEs in the past. I am trying to work with lldb and the first question I have is what do i do when setting breakpoints, as I have tried to set one, but the response was unable to resolve breakpoint to any actual locations. also, do I have to direct the debugger to look at the symbols file(which file is it btw) or set something else up or do things simply get taken care of by themselves and symbols get generated after building the .app file?
Thank You!
