Summary0001353: Make static function xdebug_dbgp_parse_option() extern
DescriptionDontbug (see ) is a reversible debugger for PHP

Dontbug depends on Xdebug ( see Credits at )

Currently a very small patch needs to be applied to Xdebug to get it to work with Dontbug (see )

Basically the patch makes the static function xdebug_dbgp_parse_option() extern.

The rationale for this patch is described here:

I was wondering if we could incorporate the patch into the Xdebug master & 2.4.x branches so that end users will not need to build a patched Xdebug locally in order to use Dontbug. (The extraneous C comments in the patch should be removed, of course, while incorporating it into Xdebug sources)

I would be very grateful if you considered this patch for inclusion. I think this will be a great help in reducing entry barriers to reverse debugging on PHP. Thank you for all the help Xdebug has already given Dontbug.
TagsNo tags attached.
Operating System
PHP Version7.0.10-7.0.14

I might want to implement this, but it's not high on my list of things to do.

I'm closing this as this is now very long ago.
