cgdb is a lightweight curses (terminal-based) interface to the GNU Debugger (GDB). In addition to the standard gdb console, cgdb provides a split screen view that displays the source code as it executes. The keyboard interface is modeled after vim, so vim users should feel at home using cgdb.
- Syntax-highlighted source window
- Visual breakpoint setting
- Keyboard shortcuts for common functions
