Best windows (platform-independent) Debugger?

Best windows (platform-independent) Debugger?

Post by MACALL.. » Sun, 17 Mar 1991 08:37:24




What's currently the best de* available. GNU?
I'm new to UNIX and looking for something which will run across
 several platforms - Ultrix, SUN, Apollo, etc - in a windows environment
 using C, FORTRAN, etc.
Price is a major consider - public domain is most attractive.
Thanks in advance,
John

1. make AT_SYSINFO platform-independent

How about moving the AT_SYSINFO macro from asm-i386/elf.h to
linux/elf.h?  Several architectures can benefit from it (certainly
pa-risc and ia64) and since glibc also defines it in a
non-platformspecific fashion, there really is no point not doing the
same in the kernel.  I suppose it would be nice if we could renumber
it from 32 to 18, but that would require updating glibc, which is
probably too painful.
