Debugger question again

Dear all,

I sent a similar post before this is no different.

I would like to learn which degugger you are using and your
recommendations for deguggers(I am using Linux, Ubuntu).

I am using DDD for C++. Sometimes I need help and the manual does not
answer all the questions so I am asking this second question for the
people
who are using DDD: Is there a mailing list like this one where I can
get help easily. (There is one mailing list(d...@gnu.org) but I think
that is not operational since no replies so far :-(( )

Regards,

Huh?

Didn't I recommend you asking this in a Linux newsgroup, or was it
somebody else? Well, here it is once more: please ask OS-specific
questions in the newsgroup dedicated to that OS. You need to post your
debugger question to one of 'comp.os.linux.development.*' forums.

There are Linux-specific newsgroups and there are 'gnu.*' newsgroups.
Start there. Here we talk C++ language and it does NOT define any
debuggers.

Sorry, you were the one to reply me, I followed your advice and posted
comp.lang...apps group and waited and did not have any replies and then
I have asked again.

debuggers.

Is not debugging related with the language.

Sorry , I will try that group as well.

Regards.

Debugging is related with programming in general, not specifically C++.
The use of a particular debugger is not topical here.

Though off topic indeed, but I'll answer your question,
since no one else has.

Use gdb from within emacs. That's all you need. If you don't know either
gdb or emacs, spend a day or two learning them, it'll pay off tenfold.
Both are well documented:

Debugging is related to C++. Debuggers aren't. Ask in a newsgroup for your
compiler. If you don't get any answers there, then no one cares.

You will get the best results on DDD's mailing list. Also try the mailing
list for its back-end, gdb, and try a linux programming newsgroup.

(Also, uh, some people write so many unit tests they never need to run a
debugger. I use DDD all the time for legacy code in my situation, but I
won't discuss that here because I won't dilute this newsgroup's focus.
Except parenthetically;)
