GDB

GDB

GDB is a source-level debugger, capable of breaking programs at any specific line, displaying variable values, and determining where errors occurred. Currently, it works for C, C++, Fortran, Modula 2 and Java programs.

Specifically, GDB can do four main kinds of things (plus other things in support of these) to help developers identify bugs:

  • Start the program, specifying anything that might affect its behavior
  • Make the program stop on specified conditions
  • Examine what has happened, when the program has stopped
  • Change things in the code, to experiment with correcting the effects of one bug and go on to learn about another

GDB is a must-have for any serious programmer.
