software OS4   software OS4 : Debug 101 - first class debugger for OS 4.1
   posted by Troels on 11-Dec-2012 22:48:34 (1904 reads)
Debug 101 v. 1.0.0 by Alfkil has been released!

Debug 101 at

Db101 is a source level debugger for os4.1. It can do many of the same tasks as GDB, but has a nice reaction gui and an Arexx port.

Read more---->

This is a big update, with completely revamped gui and a lot of cool features added:

- Interpretation of structs, unions and enums
- added "detach" function from detached mode
- added "signals" window
- added posibility to set breakpoints at symbols and absolute addresses
- added step into and step out
- added ability to hexview any part of memory

Thanks to kas1e and NinjaDNA for testing.

Good work Alfkil, I'm sure it will be well received among the developers.

This is really a wonderful program! I love having the source level code available from the fstab data.
i noticed though that it did not display any global variables for me, although I have several in my program I tested it with. Any idea why?

Haven't really tested it but if it does what it says, it's awesome. Really missed this back then when I was trying to finish a few Amiga projects that never got finished, ended up learning how to uses SASC debugger, which is actually quite practical.

Cool! I never managed to learn GDB, so this will be nice to try.
Can I connect it to an editor, like Annotate, using arexx?

This has some excellent features and shows promise. However, it couldn't handle my game MABL. The documentation is sketchy. I'm looking forward to future updates. I would definitely contribute if it were more useful for me. I'm pretty sick of gdb and would love to find an alternative.
