Hi list,

trying to use the espeak external from
on raspbian armv7l. I can make it crash by clicking the example
message holding a list of words to synthesize twice in espeak-help.pd
How can I go about debugging/fixing it?

Thanks! P

This is what gdb posts:

gdb --args pd Desktop/espeak-help.pd 
Reading symbols from pd...(no debugging symbols found)...done.
