Function Documentation

dbg_event_code_t idaapi wait_for_next_event ( int  wfne,
int  timeout_in_secs 

Wait for the next event.

This function (optionally) resumes the process execution, and waits for a debugger event until a possible timeout occurs.

wfnecombination of Wait for debugger event flags constants
timeoutnumber of seconds to wait, -1-infinity
either an event_id_t (if > 0), or a dbg_event_code_t (if <= 0)
uint idaapi set_debugger_options ( uint  options)

Set debugger options.

Replaces debugger options with the specification combination Debugger options

the old debugger options
void idaapi set_remote_debugger ( const char *  host,
const char *  pass,
int  port = -1 

Set remote debugging options.

Should be used before starting the debugger.

hostIf empty, IDA will use local debugger. If NULL, the host will not be set.
passIf NULL, the password will not be set
portIf -1, the default port number will be used
void idaapi get_process_options ( qstring path,
qstring args,
qstring sdir,
qstring host,
qstring pass,
int *  port 

Get process options.

Any of the arguments may be NULL

void idaapi set_process_options ( const char *  path,
const char *  args,
const char *  sdir,
const char *  host,
const char *  pass,
int  port 

Set process options.

Any of the arguments may be NULL, which means 'do not modify'

excvec_t *idaapi retrieve_exceptions ( void  )

Retrieve the exception information.

You may freely modify the returned vector and add/edit/delete exceptions You must call store_exceptions() after any modifications Note: exceptions with code zero, multiple exception codes or names are prohibited

const char *idaapi define_exception ( uint  code,
const char *  name,
const char *  desc,
int  flags 

Convenience function: define new exception code.

codeexception code (can not be 0)
nameexception name (can not be empty or NULL)
descexception description (maybe NULL)
flagscombination of Exception info flags
failure message or NULL. You must call store_exceptions() if this function succeeds
const char* idaapi set_dbg_options ( debugger_t _dbg,
const char *  keyword,
int  pri,
int  value_type,
const void *  value 

Convenience function to set debugger specific options.

It checks if the debugger is present and the function is present and calls it.
