Thanks in advice.
I found the option "Attach to Process" in menu Debug and Tools, can you tell
me in detail about how to debug using "Attach to Process" option? Because I
built webkit in cygwin, so i think if i want to debug in VS2005, i should
configure something in VS2005, but i don't know how to do.If someone knows,
please tell me!
