ccdebug - a graphical gdb debugger frontend

The Source Code Window

The editor that serves as a gdb frontend started as a DOS program writing directly into the screen buffer, and functionally was a mixture of AEDIT (Intel) and the Turbo-C-Editor (Borland). Over time, when it seemed useful, I added this or that feature, but never gave it a complete overhaul. So, internally, it is a mixture of C and C++, and might be improved in many ways. Nevertheless, it is stable, well tested, and has a lot of features.

This is what you need for debugging:
