The devel/ddd port
ddd-3.3.12p16 – Data Display Debugger, graphical front-end for GDB, etc
What is DDD, anyway?
The Data Display Debugger (DDD) is a common graphical user
interface to GDB, DBX, and XDB, the popular UNIX debuggers.
Besides ``usual'' features such as viewing source texts and
breakpoints, DDD provides a graphical data display, where data
structures are displayed as graphs. A simple mouse click
dereferences pointers or reveals structure contents, updated each
time the program stops. Using DDD, you can reason about your
application by viewing its data, not just by viewing it execute
lines of source code.
Other DDD features include: debugging of programs written in C,
C++, Ada, Fortran, Pascal, Modula-2, or Modula-3; machine-level
debugging; hypertext source navigation and lookup; breakpoint,
backtrace, and history editors; preferences and settings editors;
program execution in terminal emulator window; debugging on remote
host; on-line manual; interactive help on the Motif user
interface; GDB/DBX/XDB command-line interface with full editing,
history, and completion capabilities. DDD has been designed to
compete with well-known commercial debuggers.
