Nemiver

Nemiver

Nemiver is a project to write a standalone graphical debugger that integrates in the GNOME desktop. It features a backend which uses the well known GNU Debugger GDB to debug C/C++ programs.

Nemiver is built with a plugin system that can offer several different perspectives. Currently the only perspective provided is a debugging perspective, but it could be expanded with perspectives added for Valgrind, or for profiling tools such as oprofile.

Nemiver uses an sqlite database to store basic information about a debugging session so developers can resume where they left off last time.

Nemiver is a bit more than just a simple GUI debugger. It is actually a platform which can be extended with plugins and dynamically loaded modules. The libnemivercommon library provides the basic functionality for loading dynamic modules and enabling the plugin architecture of Nemiver. You can create additional plugins for nemiver, and you can even create entirely new perspectives for the nemiver workbench.

Nemiver includes several automated unit tests which can be run with 'make check'. Because nemiver uses dynamically-loaded modules, however, these tests must be run after installing Nemiver, otherwise they will not work.
