Interface:

Exceptq adds a comprehensive trap reporting facility to your app with just 5 lines of code. Reports include: the call stack, disassembly of the faulting instructions, a stack dump, a listing of dlls loaded, and more. The zip contains how-to info and needed files, including the new MapXQS.exe.

Programs that include this special debugging technique must always be distributed with the corresponding files of symbols (.sym/.xqs) or debug (.dbg) ones, for each executable module, otherwise the information from any exceptions, being incomplete, are not very useful to developers.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.
