Description _ gtzabari 2004-09-06 05:21:23 UTC
Currently PROJECT SETTINGS | BUILD | COMPILING
SOURCES | Generate Debugging Info does not include
enabling asserts but there is no indication of
this anywhere. Either indicate this somewhere or
add another checkbox for enabling asserts.
Comment 1 _ gtzabari 2004-09-06 05:23:23 UTC
Uh, silly me. Asserts are always compiled but only enabled/disabled at
runtime. What I meant to say is that we should add assert support for
running options.
Comment 2 David Konecny 2004-09-06 08:39:13 UTC
Type "-ea" to VM Options field in Running Project panel.

David,

I'm reopening this issue because the point was a usability issue, not
the technical ability to add "-ea". The current UI is confusing
because users may assume that "Generate Debugging Info" somehow means
asserts are on. It isn't really clear what is going on. Unless you
have an explicit option for asserts under "Running" users might
confuse the two as I have.

No plans to touch it.
