DDD alternative for Windows


I really like the DDD debugger on Linux. It is standalone and easy to use. But I am developing a crossplatform app and I need a good debugger that runs on Windows. So Is there any standalone opensource frontend for gdb on Windows?

Hi...

I'm not sure how many of them are open source (and you may have already seen them) but perhaps the pages linked to below might be of help...

Thanks those links helped. I checked the Beaver debugger out. it seems pretty good. Not as easy as DDD but it has a nice interface. It's crossplatform too.

what was not mentioned: you can try to install cygwin and use ddd itself. (probably would be better to build your app for cygwin)

That sounds good. I use the Tdm-Gcc compiler http://tdm-gcc.tdragon.net
would I be able to run both on the same pc?

definitely you will be able to do that, but I have no idea how they work together.

Thanks I'll check into it. I didn't know cygwin had an X port but it might be what I'm looking for.
