You might want to take a look at the great book by Maltiff & Salzmann:
"The Art of Debugging". They provide a very nice overview about what gdb
can do. They also describe the gdb frontends DDD and Eclipse Of course
they only use C as a programming language.
They say that using a debugger has a lot advantages over code
Nonetheless, Delphi, besides a relatively decently working realtime
Debugger, provides additional service for code instrumentation with
dedicated function ( "OutputDebugString()" ) and a additional "trace"
debug window. (I don't know whether Lararus offers this, too.)
Lazarus is just another frontent for gdb, so in theory anything that gdb
offers should work decently through Lazarus. And IMHO, Lazarus is a
really nice gdb frontent (if it would work perfectly).
