Debugging Erlang NIF with LLDB

Earlier today I ran across a segfault while trying something with
cberl so I figured it’s time to startup
gdb and see what is going on, but how to actually do that? Luckily
I found a post on the erlang programming
list

with the exact same problem. Since I’m on a Mac I wanted to use
lldb instead so a quick modification to the erl
startup script did the trick.

Now ./rebar skip_deps=true eunit runs erland via lldb and ready to
debug.
