lldb debugging functionality for Gecko
======================================

This directory contains a module, lldbutils, which is imported by the
in-tree .lldbinit file. The lldbutil modules define some lldb commands
that are handy for debugging Gecko.

If you want to add a new command or Python-implemented type summary, either add
it to one of the existing broad area Python files (such as lldbutils/layout.py
for layout-related commands) or create a new file if none of the existing files
is appropriate. If you add a new file, make sure you add it to __all__ in
lldbutils/__init__.py.


Supported commands
------------------

Most commands below that can take a pointer to an object also support being
called with a smart pointer like nsRefPtr or nsCOMPtr.


* frametree EXPR, ft EXPR
frametreelimited EXPR, ftl EXPR

Shows information about a frame tree. EXPR is an expression that
is evaluated, and must be an nsIFrame*. frametree displays the
entire frame tree that contains the given frame. frametreelimited
displays a subtree of the frame tree rooted at the given frame.

Dumps the current JS stack.

(lldb) js

2 handleEvent(aEvent = [object Event]) ["chrome://browser/content/tabbrowser.xml":3811]
this = [object XULElement]


* prefcnt EXPR

Shows the refcount of a given object. EXPR is an expression that is
evaluated, and can be either a pointer to or an actual refcounted
object. The object can be a standard nsISupports-like refcounted
object, a cycle-collected object or a mozilla::RefCounted<T> object.

(lldb) p this
(nsHTMLDocument *) $1 = 0x0000000116e9d800

* pstate EXPR

Shows the frame state bits (using their symbolic names) of a given frame.
EXPR is an expression that is evaluated, and must be an nsIFrame*.

(lldb) p this

* ptag EXPR

Shows the DOM tag name of a node. EXPR is an expression that is
evaluated, and can be either an nsINode pointer or a concrete DOM
object.

(lldb) p this
(nsHTMLDocument *) $0 = 0x0000000116e9d800
(lldb) ptag this
(PermanentAtomImpl *) $1 = 0x0000000110133ac0 u"#document"
(lldb) p this->GetRootElement()
(mozilla::dom::HTMLSharedElement *) $2 = 0x0000000118429780
(lldb) ptag $2
(PermanentAtomImpl *) $3 = 0x0000000110123b80 u"html"


Supported type summaries and synthetic children
-----------------------------------------------

In lldb terminology, type summaries are rules for how to display a value
when using the "expression" command (or its familiar-to-gdb-users "p" alias),
and synthetic children are fake member variables or array elements also
added by custom rules.

For objects that do have synthetic children defined for them, like nsTArray,
the "expr -R -- EXPR" command can be used to show its actual member variables.


* nsAString, nsACString,
nsFixedString, nsFixedCString,
nsAutoString, nsAutoCString

Strings have a type summary that shows the actual string.

(lldb) frame info
frame #0: 0x000000010400cfea XUL`nsCSSParser::ParseProperty(this=0x00007fff5fbf5248, aPropID=eCSSProperty_margin_top, aPropValue=0x00007fff5fbf53f8, aSheetURI=0x0000000115ae8c00, aBaseURI=0x0000000115ae8c00, aSheetPrincipal=0x000000010ff9e040, aDeclaration=0x00000001826fd580, aChanged=0x00007fff5fbf5247, aIsImportant=false, aIsSVGMode=false) + 74 at nsCSSParser.cpp:12851
(lldb) p aPropValue
(const nsAString_internal) $16 = u"-25px"

(lldb) p this
(nsHTMLDocument *) $18 = 0x0000000115b56000
(lldb) p mContentType
(nsCString) $19 = {
nsACString_internal = "text/html"
}

* nscolor

nscolors (32-bit RGBA colors) have a type summary that shows the color as
one of the CSS 2.1 color keywords, a six digit hex color, an rgba() color,
or the "transparent" keyword.

(lldb) p this
(nsTextFrame *) $0 = 0x00000001168245e0
(lldb) p *this->StyleColor()
(const nsStyleColor) $1 = {
mColor = lime
}
(lldb) expr -R -- *this->StyleColor()
(const nsStyleColor) $2 = {
mColor = 4278255360
}

* nsIAtom

Atoms have a type summary that shows the string value inside the atom.

(lldb) frame info
frame #0: 0x00000001028b8c49 XUL`mozilla::dom::Element::GetBoolAttr(this=0x0000000115ca1c50, aAttr=0x000000011012a640) const + 25 at Element.h:907
(lldb) p aAttr
(PermanentAtomImpl *) $1 = 0x000000011012a640 u"readonly"

* nsTArray and friends

nsTArrays and their auto and fallible varieties have synthetic children
for their elements. This means when displaying them with "expr" (or "p"),
they will be shown like regular arrays, rather than showing the mHdr and
other fields.

(lldb) frame info
frame #0: 0x00000001043eb8a8 XUL`SVGTextFrame::DoGlyphPositioning(this=0x000000012f3f8778) + 248 at SVGTextFrame.cpp:4940
(lldb) p charPositions
(nsTArray<nsPoint>) $5 = {
[0] = {
mozilla::gfx::BasePoint<int, nsPoint> = {
x = 0
y = 816
}
}
[1] = {
mozilla::gfx::BasePoint<int, nsPoint> = {
x = 426
y = 816
}
}
[2] = {
mozilla::gfx::BasePoint<int, nsPoint> = {
x = 906
y = 816
}
}
}
(lldb) expr -R -- charPositions
(nsTArray<nsPoint>) $4 = {
nsTArray_Impl<nsPoint, nsTArrayInfallibleAllocator> = {
nsTArray_base<nsTArrayInfallibleAllocator, nsTArray_CopyWithMemutils> = {
mHdr = 0x000000012f3f1b80
}
}
}

* nsTextNode, nsTextFragment

Text nodes have a type summary that shows the nsTextFragment in the
nsTextNode, which itself has a type summary that shows the text
content.

(lldb) p this
(nsTextFrame *) $14 = 0x000000011811bb10
(lldb) p mContent
(nsTextNode *) $15 = 0x0000000118130110 "Search or enter address"
