I have been having this problem since I started using stl containers awhile ago. Basically, when I debug them with the default Code::Blocks MinGW debugger I find that it gives far too much irrelevant information such as iterators and other 'behind-the-scenes' stuff. I can make it better by telling it to watch it as an array, then t just shows the data. But now I have a vector of vectors of decent sizes, and right clicking each one and telling code::blocks to watch them as an array is just not something that I am going to do. Anybody know how to make the default Code::Blocks MinGW debugger treat stl containers like normal arrays/strings?
