c-debugger windows
« on: November 14, 2009, 03:13:06 pm »
Hi!

I write C-Programs using the visual c++ compiler under Code::Blocks. However I'm still looking for an executable debugger which I can integrate in Code::Blocks under WINDOWS.

It seems as if both Visual c++ and dev-c++ only have integrated debuggers (no stand-alone executables which I can integrate under Settings --> Compiler and Debugger Settings --> Toolchain Executables).

Do you have an idea which debugger I could use under Code::Blocks under Windows? (ddd under cygwin is much to complicated)

The most easiest solution is switch to the GCC tools (compiler and debugger).
www.mingw.org
Or even better then mingw : http://www.tdragon.net/recentgcc/

That way you compile with GCC and debug with GDB.

You could use the CDB debugger by MS, but the its integration in CB is way behind the GDB's integration.
