Data Display Debugger – a common graphical front-end for GDB/DBX/XDB
DDD is the Data Display Debugger, a common graphical front-end for GDB, DBX, and XDB debuggers.
DDD is an Motif application that besides the “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. Complex data structures can be explored incrementally and interactively, using automatic layout if preferred. Each time the program stops, the data display reflects the current variable values.
Data Display Debugger requires pty4 functionality to talk to GDB, so make sure to either load appropriate kernel module or use custom kernel with pty4 compiled in.
