Is this possible to do? If so which executable do I need to use. I cannot find one. I was also wondering if it is pobbible to use gdb with anything compiled with Visual C++. Thanks for any help

You want a command line debugger for VC++?

If you google around microsoft.com you should find a free download for something called "Windows Debugging Tools". It has a command line debugger, ntsd.exe and a GUI debugger, windbg.. Apparently, a lot of the Microsoft developers prefer to use these instead of the one built into VC++.

Personally, I don't understand the attraction, though...

/me goes to look.

I find the VC++ debugger to be... perhaps too good for me. I just want to put a few watches and step through code...
