GDB Debug Tool

Debugging is one of the most time consuming parts of application development. The GNU Project Debugger, commonly known as GDB, is the most commonly used command line source level debugging tool used for Linux applications.

According to, “GDB can do four main kinds of things (plus other things in support of these) to help you catch bugs in the act:

  1. Start your program, specifying anything that might affect its behavior.
  2. Make your program stop on specified conditions.
  3. Examine what has happened, when your program has stopped.
  4. Change things in your program, so you can experiment with correcting the effects of one bug and go on to learn about another.”


Timesys’ Factory includes GDB to provide source level, multithreaded remote debugging and tracing of your application and libraries. This features allows setup of your cross platform debug session quickly and efficiently so you can start debugging your application on day one.
