V IDE 0.5 almost ready with gdb support.
Sun May 9 11:55:00 GMT 1999
I'm about ready to release VIDE 0.5. I just sent
a copy to Mumit so he could check out an NT problem
which I hope to solve before I release.
It does have a good gdb interface. Essentially,
it has a gdb command window open when debugging,
so you can use the full capability of gdb. But
the common operations are well integrated. The
nicest is steping through a program via breakpoints
or statement steps and having the source file
open and the line highlighted. It is easier
to examine variable values as well. I find it
a very nice compromise between limiting the features
of the debugger because of a limited GUI, but
including the GUI features for the basics.
I hope to make an release announcement in a few
days. In the mean time, you can check out
release 0.4, which does have the gdb interface,
but doesn't include the many new features I've
added in 0.5.
