The purpose of a debugger is to allow you to see what is going on inside another program while it executes. It is useful to find out what another program was doing at the moment it crashed. I know most people will recommend GNU gdb, Nemiver, Valgrind or IDE such as Eclipse. I use gdb when it is really required; otherwise I debug the old fashioned way using printf() or cout statements.

It’s been over 10 days since I’ve blogged. I was busy with workload so I could not update the blog. I missed lots of news worthy stuff. Here is a quick news roundup:

a] A new custom version of Ubuntu aimed at netbooks and based on 8.04 Hardy Heron has been released by HP.

b] Open source Exchange server replacement only a year away.

c] Scripting SSH access and file transfers with Python can be frustrating – but the Paramiko module solves that in a powerful way.

d] Amazon offering 3 Full Version Games for a Limited period of time.

e] cyberciti.biz / nixcraft.com is now IPv6 enabled.

This may come handy while writing cross-platform scripts.

If you don’t want to commit to the idiosyncrasies of a specific shell running on a particular platform, try the Squirrel Shell. The Squirrel Shell provides an advanced, object-oriented scripting language that works equally well on UNIX, Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows systems. Write a script once, and run it anywhere.

Squirrel is a high level imperative/OO programming language, designed to be a light-weight scripting language that fits in the size, memory bandwidth, and real-time requirements of applications like video games.
