For debugging, I use gdb. But I use the front end cgdb. I can see the codes with the cursor when debugging. I can use F8 for next instead of n + enter. And F10 for step instead of s + enter. i is the key for enter gdb command mode. And ESC can change the user to command mode. But ESC is too far away from my finger, so I prefer “Ctrl + [” to ESC ;)
In the config file of cgdb:
“set winsplit=top_big: is for letting the code window bigger than the gdb command windows, which is convenient for debugging.
A list of useful cgdb shortcuts:
`F5' Send a run command to GDB. `F6' Send a continue command to GDB. `F7' Send a finish command to GDB. `F8' Send a next command to GDB. `F10' Send a step command to GDB. `spacebar' Sets a breakpoint at the current line number. `t' Sets a temporary breakpoint at the current line number. `i' Puts the user into "GDB mode". `I' Puts the user into "TTY mode".
These short cuts is available in cgdb 0.6.5.
Updated on Apr. 2 2010. Short cuts are added.
