I would use gdb, and i would insert breakpoint, and son on. It's possibile to do this during the simulation? How can i do? I also read this page But isn't enough clear.

There are some scripts in drcsim that enable this behavior. See the atlas_no_controllers.launch file and the scripts folder, especially run_gzserver_gdb. I believe it can be invoked by appending gzname:=gzserver_gdb to the roslaunch command, for example

roslaunch drcsim_gazebo atlas.launch gzname:=gzserver_gdb

Thanks for you answer. But there is something similar to set a variable in the CmakeLists.txt of source's package of the library ? For example set(.....DEBUG =1 ) ?
