\section1 Built-in Debugger Is Slow During Startup and Runtime
The \QC for Windows installation packages install GDB from MinGW.
Unfortunately, GDB is quite slow on Windows. \QC does not cause
this, as it interacts with GDB and adds custom dumpers for Qt types.
\note You can use \QC with MSVC on Windows for debugging.
The part of the slowness that is related to the loading of
debug information is hard to avoid. Another part stems from
maintaining breakpoints inside the debugger (under some circumstances
all breakpoints need to be inserted and removed again for each step)
and the evaluation of expressions after each step. We recommend that
you minimize the number of breakpoints and watched expressions.
