I want to debug the Win32 event pumping loop. Thus, I need to put a breakpoint at GetMessage and GetMessageW call. I am using gdb as an asm disassembler on a file with no symbol table.

Thus, how to make gdb break every time that a certain function is called?

    How are you using gdb on Windows? gdbserver? Or are you using gdb on Wine? – user464014 Oct 10 at 5:35
  • @user464014 I'm using it in as a MinGW package on W10 – Lovy Oct 11 at 7:10
  • I'm not sure that is the best approach. Maybe you should use a native Windows debugger like x64dbg, OllyDbg (32bit), or WinDbg. – user464014 Oct 11 at 17:39
