Re: xxgdb or ddd

Thank you for your reply:

Firstly, at the command line I enter the following --> xxgdb gdbtst

where I started the program I get Segmentation Violation. So I don't have
an opportunity to do anything within the debugger.

If I just start xxgdb and try to select the file to debug, following the
selection of the file all the xxgdb window remove themselves from the

The progam that I am running is a simple hello world C program 
which runs fine from the command line.

that command. Can you tell me more.

Thanks Peter

I have used xxgdb before,
