Chapter 7. GNU Debugger (GDB)

The GNU Debugger, commonly abbreviated as GDB, is a command line tool that can be used to debug programs written in various programming languages. It allows you to inspect memory within the code being debugged, control the execution state of the code, detect the execution of particular sections of code, and much more.
Red Hat Developer Toolset is distributed with GDB 7.8.2. This version is more recent than the version included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the previous release of Red Hat Developer Toolset, and provides some enhancements and numerous bug fixes.
