Debugging C++ Code on Linux using WSL and Visual Studio 2022 - Specifying Command Line Arguments

David Stidolph 20 Reputation points

I am building command line apps for both Windows and Linux. I am using a Windows computer and Visual Studio 2022. When developing for Windows I can specify command line arguments for debugging by Right-Clicking on the project and going to the Debug tab - how do I do this for Linux? I can debug by pressing F5 and it copy's/builds/runs as a Linux program, but I need to specify test arguments!

Visual Studio

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    You can specify the "args" property in the Launch.vs.json file.

    For more details, you can refer to: Configure CMake debugging sessions
