rust-lldb problem with unit tests in a lib target.

[UPDATE]

This problem has already been fixed on master(rust-lang/cargo#7965), and will be released as Cargo 1.43 at 2020-04-03.

Problem description

On macOS, when I build tests in a lib target (with cargo test --lib --no-run), and run LLDB on the test binary, breakpoints does not work.

This problem occurs with both rust-lldb and VSCode with CodeLLDB.

Environment

  • Operating system: macOS Catalina 10.15.3
  • Rust toolchain: stable-x86_64-apple-darwin
  • Rustc version: 1.41.1 (f3e1a954d 2020-02-24)
  • lldb: 9.0.1
  • VSCode: 1.42.1
  • CodeLLDB: 1.5.0

Steps to reproduce

  • Cargo.toml
[package]
name = "rust-lldb-workaround"
version = "0.1.0"
edition = "2018"
  • src/lib.rs
#[cfg(test)]
mod tests {
    #[test]
    fn it_works() {
        assert_eq!(2 + 2, 4);
    }
}
  • test.sh (script to reproduce)
#!/bin/bash

rm -rf target
bin=$(cargo test --lib --no-run --message-format=json | jq -r '.executable')
rust-lldb $bin <<- EOF
breakpoint set --name tests::it_works
EOF

Why breakpoint does not work?

When build tests in a bin target, cargo test will create .dSYM in target/debug/ directory.

]

But not when build tests in a lib target.

It seems to be intentional at the moment, and the binaries under deps directories are expected to run.

https://github.com/rust-lang/cargo/blob/e618d47a1765ca18d1601d4cf891a55a34d23aed/src/cargo/core/compiler/build_context/target_info.rs#L260-L269

But for tools like CodeLLDB, it is desirable to create a .dSYM in target/debug/ (at least at the moment).

In this document shows a simple workaround that just create .dSYM symlink in target/debug/. Please let me know if you have any unexpected side effects.

Workaround

Manually create a symlink to .dSYM between cargo test and llvm.

  • test-workaround.sh
#!/bin/bash

rm -rf target
bin=$(cargo test --lib --no-run --message-format=json | jq -r '.executable')

# create symlink of .dSYM directory
(cd target/debug && for d in deps/*.dSYM; do ln -sf $d ./; done)

rust-lldb $bin <<- EOF
breakpoint set --name tests::it_works

VSCode

If you try to do the same with VSCode (and CodeLLDB), you get:

  "configurations": [

        }
      },

      // Add this line.

    }
  ]
}

      ]
    }
