TUTORIAL: How to connect CLion with Dronecode probe

There are two steps to this, first making a CLion Debug configuration:


Second step is to find a .gdbinit file that gets loaded by the GDB instance that your debug configuration defines.
Mine is at /home/silver/.gdbinit

define target remote
	shell ln -fs /dev/serial/by-id/usb-*Black_Magic_Probe*-if00 .gdb_port.tmp
	tar ext .gdb_port.tmp
	mon swdp_scan
	attach 1
	set mem inaccessible-by-default off
end

This is intrusive in the operation of GDB in other cases where you need to use target remote but in this case it is a workaround for a missing feature in CLion. Having redefined the built-in command remote you will need to comment out this new part of the .gdbinit file if you need to use the actual target remote command.

You can avoid this by moving your .gdbinit into the project root instead of ~.
