If you’ve ever rubbed your eyes trying to decrypt C++ compilation errors from a terminal, or even have faced with your bare eye the intimidating logs of valgrind output for memory leak detection, or manually deployed gdb, you should definitely keep reading. With this post, I believe you’ll improve your productivity and experience with ROOT by using QtCreator as a development and troubleshooting environment.Debugging CERN ROOT scripts and ROOT-based programs in Eclipse IDE (30 Oct 2021)
