gdb-5.3: description + notes
The purpose of a debugger such as gdb is to allow you to see
what is going on ``inside'' another program while it
executes -- or what another program was doing at the moment it
gdb can do four main kinds of things (plus other things in
support of these) to help you catch bugs in the act:
- Start your program, specifying anything that might
affect its behavior.
- Make your program stop on specified conditions.
- Examine what has happened, when your program has stopped.
- Change things in your program, so you can experiment
with correcting the effects of one bug and go on to
learn about another.
The GDB home page
has more information.
Note: gdb does not support debugging 64-bit executables
or programs using
pthreads on IRIX.
To install this package, go to the SGI Freeware site.
