General debugging steps

  1. Configure the debugger options
  2. Choose the desired CMake profile.
  3. Define a run/debug configuration for the application to be debugged.
  4. Create breakpoints in the source code.
  5. Launch a debugging session.
  6. Pause or resume the debugging session as required.
