Re: Wanting to start coding for AmigaOS4.x from scratch

I used gdb many years ago when I ported Kaffe to the Amiga. It was OK under ixemul then (on M68K, of course). As is typical with *nix software, it was designed to be used from the command line by a developer with the capacity to remember lots of meaningless acronyms and abbreviations.

As an on-line debugger, it can't be used to debug system components (since it can't interrupt and pause system tasks). In that sense it's of no use to me now with my OS component development, I have to rely on printf statements (to the serial debug port).

Rigo's Codebench (there's another plug for it) has an interface to gdb, but I must admit I haven't used it.
